Good Morning all!
Two days left

Come see us under the stars of Bethlehem!
… in addition to the Market I can be reached at my new website….
72 hrs left until I open shop at this year’s Cardiff Christmas Market!
Come down, have a browse, enjoy the festivities. It’s that time of year guys – it’s nearly Christmas!
Catrin Griffiths Designs will be open at 10am – 5.30pm Tuesday – Saturday (Important date in the Welsh Calendar – Wales v New Zealand Rugby game, kick off 5.30pm!) – Remember we are open all day until that important kick off hr.
Come over, visit us at stall 17, St John St. Welcome to all, Croeso i bawb!
With the acquisition of a new kiln, and the date set for a
Christmas Market in Cardiff (get your diaries out everyone,- 18 November – 22 of November),
it’s all quite exciting around the mountains of Snowdonia!!
Here is a preview of new pieces in progress that will become part of the ‘Made in Wales’ collection!
Exclusively made for Cardiff,- here’s a quick sneaky peek of items in progress that will be on offer…
…from freshly ‘baked’ slate ceramic gems to hand crafted wooden trinkets…

Ooo, a MUST read!
For any foodie, traveller or explorers, have a look at this blog post I have just come across, simply delightful!
It’s all just so vibrant, exciting and imaginatively thought of! My taste buds are tingling and my feet are so restless!
Here are some images of both my most recent work, the ‘Made in Wales’ collection and ‘Danske Spor. Ôl. Trace.’, exhibited together for the first time yesterday at the Eisteddfod Genedlaethol yr Urdd, Meirionnydd 2014!!
(I would like to thank the team at ‘Somewhere to_’, for finding a space for me to exhibit at such a great event!)
The Urdd Eisteddfod = Celebrating the finest young welsh talent in various competitions each year.
A great day listening to some fantastic singing and dancing parties that were rehearsing for the main stage in the pavilion next door!
And just around the corner was all of this!!……
A fantastical amount of Art, from all across Wales!
Da iawn Cymru!
Here we are! For those interested parties, here are a few videos of my experiences with 3D Printing Porcelain… There are a few things to do first though!…
It is then time to return back to the traditional ways of attaching the handle to the cup body…

It has been just over a week now since the opening of the exhibition at Guldagergaard, and a week since I set both feet firmly back on Welsh soil! For those of you who were unable to attend the opening with us, here are a few highlights of the day!
This is a link to see more images of the works exhibited:
As I mentioned to a few new faces at the exhibition, for those who have interest in the making process, I hope to upload some videos of the processes and techniques I used to create my work at Guldagergaard. I hope to have these ready in the next few days- Stay tuned!
Just like I promised, here are some behind the scenes info on what we have been up to in Denmark for the past 6 weeks!
Taking a very designer tour of Copenhagen! First stop was Designer Zoo.. after a pastry or two!!! Then on to Ann Linnemann Galleri, Keramic og Glasvaerkstedet, David Samling and so much more!!!
On the very relaxing train journey home I found this very interesting article to read!- very inspiring and good way to end the day.
Working away in my own little studio space, experimenting with new making techniques!
…..3D PRINTING!!!!! 🙂
These are some BIG firings that we did here! Also my first experience of Soda firing, what a process!!!
After a long day in the studio, we would return to after dinner talks and presentations from some very exciting practitioners working in the ceramic field, such as; Christin Johannsen, Christina Schou Christiansen, Richard Launder, Nina Hole, Priscilla Mouritzen, and each other.
So, to the last few remaining days. The time to start setting up the gallery space has arrived and photographing all of the work with Ole Akhoj. The Gallery is looking very exciting by now, and is definitely worth a visit. I hope you have enjoyed my ‘behind the scenes’ info… and I look forward to seeing you all soon!!
