This weekend just gone we took a trip up to Devon to see some of Marks family which was lovely, except for the rain on Saturday...oh the rain! So torrential! Especially since we went to a charity event in a marquee, luckily there was plenty of Devonshire beers on hand to warm the cockles :)
On Sunday since we were in Devon we took a trip down to the Bovey Tracey Contemporary Craft Fair which was a very enjoyable event indeed with a very high standard of work.
One of my highlights of the show was meeting Bonbi Forest consigner Victoria Lindo who's work I find so adorable. She had a selection of her baby bird brooches and baby cats there for sale (as do we in the Emporium!) as well as some of her amazing appliqued artworks...
Another favorite was Rebecca Eardley who makes gorgeous jewellery out of cut coins. The imagery is beautiful with a really vintage and unusual feel:
I also fell in love with Penny Leaver Green's imagery of delicately stitched birds which she uses to explore themes and ideas in childrens stories and fairytales...
It was also hard not to ignore the AMAZINGNESS of Robert Race's toys:
And this lovely Fox and Hens ceramic set from Katrin Moye based on the children's book 'Rosie's Walk':
Oh so much loveliness :)
