If you have been reading this blog you will know I have been trying to get to grips with clay, still nothing worth showing off (trust me) but I am loving trying, and determined to get there soon. Last few days I have been doing an awful lot of research to try get to grips with exactly what I am trying to achieve - when suddenly I came across a link from Gelert Design which summed it up exactly, more hours spent on research and I think I have it.
I contacted Dave to thank him and he was very kind and supportive, so I thought today only appropriate to show off what he can do.

Gelert Design was one of my very first purchases when I joined Folksy, I bought one of these pendants for my daughter the Christmas before last, she still wears it.

Not just pendants and brooches, but you can also find tea-light holders like this, very original and great work.

I think this is amazing, the beginning of the description says..

A beautiful piece of celtic sculpture for your wall.

Based on a drawing by renowned celtic artist Courtney Davis (used with permission), this plaque depicts two entwined figures, their knotwork hair becoming the heads of hounds - symbols of fidelity in celtic lore.

You can also find artwork, I selected this one as I am a fan of art cards, but you can also find the art itself.

As usual if you click on the picture you will be taken to the Etsy shop for further information and the chance to look around the rest of the shop.

Not just a superb talent but also a thoroughly nice, helpful chap. Thank you Dave for your help and inspiration.

  1. I can see why you are fond of Gelert Designs. I myself love Celtic designs and have, on several occasions applique'd them. Good luck with your polymer research, I am sure you will get there soon.

  2. I am sure your things are gorgeous Lynda! You are far too modest, you know?!
    Lovely stuff here though ;-)

  3. These designs are fantastic, so intricate. Love Celtic designs and part of my heritage
