Currently there are five designs on these generous-sized bone china mugs. Two sorts of Hogweed, Teazle, Mare's Tail and Omega, (abstracted floral). Available from OWL and Babington House shop in Frome, The Geffrye Museum in London, Goldfishbowl Gallery in Corsham, The Cottage Gallery in Wedmore... oh, and mail order!

Steven and Hogweed Pottery now work from a studio and a shop in the artisan quarter of Frome, Catherine Hill. He shares the shop with Mel Day, wireworker extraordinaire, glass artist, Phaedra Politis, painter Anny Colgan, feltmaker Gladys Paulus and ceramic artist Hans Borgenjon.
The shops on the hill are all run by independent retailers and is well worth a browse for anyone interested in vintage, fashion and crafts. The first Sunday of the month from May to September (and December) there is an artisan market from 10am 'til 2.00pm. look at www.wegotfleas.com

Lots of berries and seed heads in red, lime green and lavender with strong black detail. Selection at Walford Mill Crafts in Wimborne, Dorset.
Being featured in Country Living (October 2010) was great and I managed to stick to the same patterns and colours for a while.
Vases in fresh green with crisp black detail and Nightweed; a speckled grey-green and black design.
Mix and Match patterns on wee coffee cups. I love mixing the colours on the inside of the cups, grey and lime look great together.
Colourway made for a lovely shop in Dulwich, Jane Newbery. Grey and a clean green with sprigs and seedhead. I have since added lime and yellow pieces to give a hint of spring.
Teazles have been creeping into the designs for about a year or so and now I am painting them on footed bowls and on vases with a flat light grey background, nice mixed in with Hogweed on mugs too.
Porridge or Pasta?
7 inch wide bowl - flat clolour with a large seed head motif. Looks good in grey or yellow too.
