I am so honoured and excited to be invited to be a guest judge for Ceramic Magpie, aka Katie Robbins for her #wipsandblooms challenge for the month of June.
Thi idea is to share your work in progress makes with an added bloom, and of course, because this month we are focusing on tools - a tool or two - tagging #wipsandblooms_tools so we can find you. I'm looking forward to a month full of lovely and interesting images, the winner will receive the pretty rose leaf necklace (below) as a prize at the end of the month. It's not just for professional makers - anyone can join in, so get tagging.

This is the rose leaf necklace is the prize I'm giving to the winner at the end of the month - cast from a rose leaf into sterling silver. You can see some of the stages it's been through below as it's being finished.
Here's a selection of my tools, I have a lot more than this, it's interesting to get them all out and line them up like this, it's easy to take things for granted. Did you know that arranging items in vertical and horizontal arrangement like this is called "knolling"? Katie is a font of knowledge!
