Ceramic hands

A new batch fresh outta the kiln. A bunch of them went in the shop today - if you order in the next 24 hours, they'll ship in time for Christmas to UK addresses.

NYT : Sudden shifts on the health front

I did a drawing for the fine folks at the NYT yesterday. Letters on the topic of Obamacare, and the USA's most-expensive-healthcare-system-in-the-world. You can read the letters, and see the drawing in situ, here.

God I love the NHS.

Interview with Metal Magazine

Read all about it! 'It' meaning 'me'. I did an interview with the good people at Metal Magazine, and they sent an actual real live photographer to take some pictures of me in my studio. Here's a few of the photos, and you can click through here to read the interview. All your Kaye Blegvad questions answered.

Photos feature sneaky previews of work-about-depression and more-ceramic-heads and more-ceramic-cats and just, work-that-hasn't-made-it-to-the-blog. One day.

All credit to the photographer, Philipp Ammon.

New Ceramics

Another batch of ceramics is up in my shop - and more to come in the next week or two. The usual I'm afraid: hands, faces, cats.

Enid & Seymour

You may recognise these guys from Cat Encounters. They are sibling cats and belong to my friend Frances. Sometimes they do matching poses.

Studio Assistant Needed

----Thanks everyone! The response has been amazing. I've found someone now, all my problems are solved!----

It's time! I've been running this ol' jewellery business for two years or so now, and it's been awesome, but it's also gotten a bit out of hand. I can no longer run it as a one-woman show: I need an assistant, or an intern - basically I need some help help help.

Interested? Or know anybody who might be? Send 'em my way.

jewellery studio I'm looking for somebody either one day a week, or, better yet, two half-days a week. It'd be working on various different things - part of it would be working on fulfilling and packaging orders, collecting items from casters and jewellery suppliers, managing some administrative aspects, and help with making and finishing the jewellery itself.

I think & hope this would be pretty useful experience for anybody interested either in making jewellery, or in running a small craft-based business. It'll be quite hands-on and you'll see and help with every aspect of the business, so I hope it'll be valuable. Last thing I want is someone stuck doing something tedious.

So I need somebody organised and quick to learn - experience making jewellery is a plus but not essential. You probably do need to be fairly crafty and good with your hands, though! And you'd need to be computer and web-savvy, and if you have any other particular skills (photography, writing, etc) I'm sure we can make 'em count. Payment is going to be somewhat dependant on experience, but there'll be none of that unpaid internship nonsense.

And needless to say, you'd need to be based in London. My studio's in Dalston/Hackney Downs.

Shoot me an email if you're interested. Let's make some stuff!

Cat Encounters

Dear friends! I have a new and very serious project to share with you. By new, I mean that I started it in 2010, but it's newly compiled online. So here's the crux of the thing: I photograph every cat that I see. Even if the photos are no good. It's pretty academic.

You can check it out here:
