New ceramics

This Saturday I'm off to BAYC (on the corner of Oakfield and Pershore Roads) for a craft fair (1-4) and I have made some new things - these pictures above and some robin bauble decorations.

Genders of science

A little while ago I saw a call for an exhibition celebrating 'woman' and it got me thinking about what I would have made. Contemplating the genders associated with the three sciences (physics, chemistry & biology) I came up with the spheres above representing the sun & moon (physics), gold & silver (chemistry) and male &  female cells with there chromosomes painted within (biology). Each of these things has been historically  associated with a particular gender or generates that gender.

Opus again

Last night I took Nick to Opus again, for his birthday - the food was superb as before. I had smoked haddock fishcake with poached egg (with a runny middle, which I have been denied for many months, yummy) and the braised lamb shank, while Nick had scallops with pork belly and then a fillet steak. We both had creme brulee for dessert and still made it home before Lexi went to bed.

One month!

Our little girl is one month old today! Gosh that has gone by quickly. To celebrate I have made another cake - Hestons' exploding chocolate gateau - though first I had to make some shortbread too! I've been dying to make this recipe, the popping candy has been sat in the cupboard for about 4months! Scrummy!

Its oh so quiet.....

Well it has been on the blog and for good reason - our little girl Lexi arrived a couple of weeks ago and has been keeping us on our toes! Though yesterday I did manage to make some little 'bat cakes' for Halloween. The local kids even remembered we made cakes last year and were super excited to see we'd done it again! (Oops the picture is upside down, but you get the idea!!)
