A recipe for Singapore spice mix that looks as good as it tastes and a proper workhorse of a pestle and mortar from Thailand.

Just back from Yorkshire - our very happy compromise for not driving all the way to the Scotland I grew up in. Later this year for that!

Amazing days at the end of March being properly: 'Comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb'. I took new work to Great Walsingham Gallery and enjoyed the way the sun lit up my 'Buried Treasure' rings.

Aldeburgh on Mother's Day - cars often seem generic to me. These less so - the gold one had a bench for a front seat, I haven't seen that since an uncle's vintage car as a child. That's a car.

I'm delighted to have been accepted as a member of The Suffolk Craft Society - I did my Art Foundtion course at The Suffolk College so it feels like coming home.

It's rather bleak in Suffolk so I'm looking at the beautiful Spirit House from the British Embassy in Thailand and remembering warmth, abundance and light instead.

A selection of 'Into the Woods' glass, with some new additions, is now at Great Walsingham Gallery and Frame. I'm also working through jetlag to have some of my glass at Laxfield Church December Market this weekend. There will be handmade, vintage and locally produced but come early - the market closes at 12:30! Totems: Company of Wolves and Folk Tale.
