Dear Reader,

Clay has this wonderful way of bringing people together, creating a bond and a camaraderie that's hard to put into words - so it tends to come out in the clay instead.

Antony Gormley - the man who made the famous cast-iron sculpture "The Angel of the North" - has an unusual way of helping his guests feel at ease at his dinner parties. After the pudding has been scoffed and all the plates cleared off the table, when people begin to wonder what's next, out comes the clay. "There's usually silence at that point," he says. "But people get on with it, and it's rather wonderful." 

Now, this doesn't surprise me and I'm with him when he suggests that every home should have a 25kg bag of clay (or, at least a small pack of the air-dry stuff), because it does unleash creativity, laughter, relaxation and a sort of camaraderie. Who needs cheese and wine?

The first designs for my Conch bowl came from pinching and moulding small pieces of clay with my feet up after supper when my kids were little and tucked up in bed. Over the past seven years, I've always loved returning to this eggshell form that originates from a simple pinch pot. It makes me so happy to be able to share this design. The Conch is available via my website and would make a lovely Christmas gift.

With Love,

Flea x
