Local company Earth Wool & Fire have just launched their new Tumblr page with a huge range of new items. Earth Wool & Fire is a collaboration between pottery, knitting and crocheting. Hand made and crafted items by a Potter and a Knitter for people who love to knit, crochet and create generally. They make fantastic accessories for creative people or ideal gift ideas for friends and relatives.
The pottery is thrown on the wheel using white earthenware clay and carved or modelled in a unique style before being coloured in a beautiful array of attractive glazes. All items are fired twice and Earth Wool & Fire pride themselves in making things to a high standard. All items are unique one offs and although orders are taken no two items are exactly the same.
“We have over seventy years of experience between us creating hand made pottery and knitted and crocheted items. We recently decided to work together to create a new range of things that we believe others would love to own and use whilst they are working on their own creations. We currently make all sorts of Yarn Bowls, Knitting Needle Vases, Crochet Hook Holders, Brooches and Buttons. We also make a few useful items for Artists such as Paintbrush Holders, Pen and Pencil Holders and Palette Bowls. Our pottery combines utilitarian functionality with quirky ornate decoration and design. We are exploring ideas for new and useful product items all the time and welcome ideas from anyone who needs an item that will make creating that bit easier for them.
We are very excited about what we make and hope that others feel the same way too”
