This week’s shop is the lovely Susan Sharpe Ceramics. Susan makes ceramic buttons and jewellery in her favourite porcelain, having studied ceramics at university. Like me, her passion and inspiration is the materials she uses and especially the glaze. This beautiful brooch is glazed with peach bloom red glaze and wrapped with green silk thread…

I particularly like this big button, in celadon green glaze, because of the great texture…

It takes a couple of weeks to create ceramic items, through the process of rolling, cutting, texturing, firing, glazing and firing again. It’s been great to find out more about how ceramics are made and you can too, if you read the interview with Susan here, and visit her shop here.
