gillian kyle & mr ps mugs

We've been going a bit mug daft here at boo vake recently with the arrival of a whole load of new bone china mugs by some of our favourite designers. Amongst which are these pleasingly substantial ones from Gillian Kyle and Mr Ps - a proper mug of tea size.

And if you so desire you can always get a matching tea towel too.

meet the maker evening

A pic from last night's meet the maker evening with ceramic artist Ceri White. Ceri even did an interview with Perth FM during the evening. What a pro! Thanks to everybody who managed to make it along.

Ceri (above) with some of her work behind her. On display are lots of small pieces that we don't usually have here at boo vake including many small hanging tiles, soap dishes, and a whole range of ceramic badges with owls, dogs, abstract designs & demi-wave ladies on them! We also have the very striking big brother of the urban mosaic - measuring about 33cm x 33cm. The (mini) exhibition will run now until the shop closes on Wednesday May 26th (yes, that's next Wednesday!).
coasters £7.50, small hanging tiles (flock animal, landscape, boats, vessel, ivory towers) start at £9, ceramic badges from £10, soap dishes £20-£22, large urban mosaic £150

ceri white mini exhibition

It's May!!... and Perth Festival of the Arts will soon be upon us. This year boo vake will be taking part with a mini exhibition by Perthshire ceramic artist Ceri White between 20th-26th May. You will no doubt be familiar with Ceri's fabulous dog/horse/stag 'flock' wall tiles and colourful mix'n'match ceramic coasters if you are a regular visitor to the shop. Ceri will be showing a range of work not usually shown here at boo vake and there will be an opportunity to commission work from her direct on the evening of May 20th. Fancy a tile made of your favourite pooch or have a tiling project in mind - now is your chance!

More details coming soon.....
