Lots of New Arrivals and Last Few Days of Sale

We have so many lovely new arrivals to report that I'm going to let the photographs do most of the talking in this blog.  However, it's all about colour and texture this summer, so do call in and check out these beautiful handmade items for yourself.. 

Please Note - We've been having a sale for the last few weeks to make way for the new arrivals, with up to 50% off many items, but the sale must end this weekend. Call in this weekend and mention this blog for extra discount before the sale ends..

The first of four new ceramic artists is Sonje Hibbert whose fabulous "Denim" and "Delph" jugs are going straight into our front window today.






From Jeweller Karin Sheldon we have her 24ct gold and silver Twilight and Daylight ranges with Butterflies or Dragonflies..





Karin uses an ancient and highly skilled technique called "Keum- Bo" in which heat and pressure are used to combine 24ct gold and sterling silver.  The technique originated in Korea where it was developed for making samurai swords.



Next, just for fun - hand made spatulas by Tim Foxall..





Perfect Presents in Porcelain, from Louise Hall,  vessels in gorgeous mix and match colours..




I've been using one of Lindsey Tyson's lovely felt pebble pin cushions for a while at home, now I'm very pleased to able to offer them, along with her keyrings and brooches, here at ArtParade.






Topical Tour de France Belles from Ann Davies sporting winning jersey colours, a lovely souvenir, I'm tempted to take the set home!



I'm very please to report the return of an old favourite here at ArtParade, Sue Candy was one our earliest ceramic artists, and returns with a lovely collection for the summer.  Her white porcelain pots come with black slate lids, in Sandpiper and Beach Hut designs and spoon included.





Louise Walker is now showing her Contour range in which she combines and contrasts geometrically shaped silver with perfect natural pearls in white or silver grey. This range really does need to be seen to be fully appreciated.





A lovely new collection of items for unique gifts come from David Meredith designer and maker of these miniature bronze statues featuring animals and birds.  Perfect at around £12.95 each for the collector of bronze or of many different animals.






Our final ceramicist is Mary Howard George, whose t-lights and jugs have been an immediate hit with customers - it's a good job I got some photos before they started flying off the shelves..






Finally, a great little gift idea from illustrator Babs Pease, these are matching greetings cards and handbag mirrors (which come gift wrapped and with a protective sleeve). We have six designs in stock, the cards are £1.95 and the mirrors are £4, a perfect package.




 More new arrivals next week.
Hope to see you at ArtParade soon.  Beverley
