This is the first year of the RHS Flower Show at Chatsworth. My studio is only 45 minutes away from the show, at Yorkshire Artspace : Persistence Works in Sheffield. I have handmade planters and birdbaths for sale in my studio, and I will be there over the weekend so if any visitors to the show would like to come along, please email me.
You can see a selection of some of my garden ceramics here https://hannewestergaard.co.uk/garden-ceramics/
My white porcelain vessels are included in the new exhibition at the Cupola Contemporary Art, Sheffield. The show opens on Friday 10 June and is on until 22 July.
The gallery also shows my small multicoloured vases, which makes good summer presents.

Some new vases and vessels for the RHS London Spring Plant and Orchid show next week.
I will be exhibiting my garden ceramics at the RHS Spring Plant and Orchid Show in London on the 29th and 30th March.
I have made new vases for orchids and other flowers, but I shall also bring my ceramics for outdoor, my birdbaths and planters.
My soda/wood fired vessels are shown at Cupola Gallery in their Christmas Exhibition.
I much enjoyed making these large nature inspired vessels .
The vessels combine porcelain and stoneware, it create a lot of tensions during the firing, and I get cracks and they split, but it is exciting to watch what the material can carry.
I shall be at the Hepworth Wakefield Christmas Market with my ceramics this weekend – Saturday 26 & Sunday 27 November. The market is free and it is open from 10am-5pm.
There will be over 50 stalls at the market selling art and craft.
I will bring some of my lighting. My porcelain lights were very popular at our open days at Yorkshire Artspace last weekend. I will also be selling other pieces, among them my small pebble pots, which makes good Christmas presents.
The Hepworth Wakefield is one of my favourite galleries, so it’s nice to be at the Christmas Market there and get a chance to nip in and have a look at the exhibits.

We are having our annual Open Studios on 18-20 November.
It is always a good opportunity to welcome friends and new visitors to our studios.
It is nice because it is informal. You can show your visitors your work in progress and explain the inspiration behind the pieces and the problems involved.
At the Open Studios visitors can also bay original works for sale from most of the studios.
We are open Friday evening 5-9
Saturday and Sunday 11-4
