From Me To You

Only a week to go! At 10am next Saturday, Handmade will open the doors at EPIC and reveal 250 stalls of designer gifts, homewares, fashion, accessories, food and fun. If you still need help with your Christmas list, why not pay a visit to this beautiful designer?

Jenny Harris is the owner, maker and creator at From Me To You Ceramics, and designs beautiful bespoke porcelain jewellery and ceramic tablewares. A veteran of the Handmade Market, Jenny will be back on 10 & 11 December with homewares and Christmas ornaments in her unique style. We asked her our five questions.

  1. What is your business all about?
    From Me To You Ceramics is the epitome of handmade, as each piece is handcrafted in small batches from the rolling of the clay, to the glazing and firing. All work is produced locally, by me.
  2. What advice would you give to designers coming to Handmade for the first time?
    Wear the most comfortable shoes ever!  Dress to reflect your brand and smile, the rest will happen.
  1. What’s the best thing about Handmade?
    Everything in the whole world has an element of handmade, but at these markets it’s really handmade, Australian made and you get to meet the designer/maker.
  1. What’s new for the Christmas Market?
    I have a few new decorations to add to the collection and I have a new style of porcelain jewellery which I will launch at the Christmas Market.
  1. What will Santa be bringing you this year?
    I have my eye on another metal pear sculpture for my garden at the Market.

So do we! We’ll see you at Handmade in a week’s time, Jenny.
