If life doesn’t go right…..then go left!

Posted on: May 18th, 2017 by Leyla Folwell No Comments

Things rarely work exactly to plan, I know this. At the grand age of 43 I have had my share of life’s little surprises and disappointments. I like to think I am flexible and can roll with it….

Moving from London Town to green and pleasant Warwickshire to marry my sweet-heart – what a whirlwind that was!

But sadly after pouring energy in to relocating The Ceramics Studio and setting up the Wigwam range our romance had run its course.

A little like the hang over after the party, there I was wondering where I belonged.  After much contemplation I realised there is no going back, only going forward, bloom where you are planted right?

So I am putting Wigwam Ceramics back together, alone for now, but I have more grand plans for a collaborative project in the near future.

I guess this is an apology, I didn’t mean to neglect you! Time just flew and I lost myself there for a while! It is hard to make happy work with a broken heart.

I am going to make it up to you and fill your life with joyous ceramics that will make you glad to be alive! Watch this space please………..

Thanks for understanding xx

 

Baby light my fire!

There s nothing more hygge than a handmade candle! I am with the Danes on this one!

So I made a few for friends and myself of course!

Being a bit of a natural chick I went down the pure soy wax route and added vanilla and lavender, am looking forward to adding to those flavours : )

I discovered the scents are stronger if I let the wax cool down a little after melting before adding the essential oil.

It looked so easy when I watched Caroline doing it here in the studio at Christmas but actually getting it all straight and set correctly is harder than I though.  I am also working on best shapes for the pots to use ….. this means loads of candle burning home research so I am feeling pretty chilled : )
