a new venture

Our daughter, Clare, alongside her silversmithing, is now undertaking a joint enterprise: the creation of home wares - bowls, table lamps etc - in cement.

She sent me a couple of photos. I told her we seem to have some affinity with cement: her maternal grandfather had to work in a cement factory in Cossebaude, Germany when he was a PoW; her maternal great grandfather had a job in the cement works near the little village of Claydon, Suffolk where my family lived until I was five.

Clare's business partner photographed her photographing some of their first products in a gallery.
Interesting image and story Hazel, clearly a multi talented family I wish her will in her business venture:)

Great story and lovely bowls. I love collecting different bowls, plates and using them when friends come around.

Fascinating...making attractive dishes for olives, crisps, nuts etc. without which an apéro doesn't render the same pleasure and satisfaction.

Cement is the new thing! Polished cement floors are all the rage but remarkably expensive to have & they look nothing like capement when finished! A very exciting new venture. Good luck to Clare in her new venture. Such a happy coincidence that your family is so connected by cement.
