Ceramic Discoveries in Sheffield

vase4

While on a recent visit to Sheffield (visiting the cousins-in-law), I paid a visit to the rather spectacular Kelham Island museum, which celebrates Sheffield’s industrial past complete with a huge working steam engine.  As luck would have it, on the weekend we were there, there was a mini festival on and the museum was filled with various traditional craft stalls; from lace makers, to wood turners and quilters.  Whilst the husband was lured away by the real ale stall outside, my eye was caught by the wares of Caroline Lee Ceramics, which had a stall overflowing with beautiful pieces.  I picked up a couple of Christmas gifts (early planning!) and also picked up a small  white vase for our mantlepiece, which has a gorgeous crackled glaze and rustic feel.

Caroline’s a native of Rotherham, South Yorkshire, and her website lists the various craft festivals and stores in which you can find her work.  Below are some of my favourites from her gallery (which might be appearing on my own Christmas list…).
