I applied to become part of the 'Made in Cornwall' scheme in order to let customers know that trading standards have been met and surpassed regarding the Cornish authenticity of my work. All my work is created here, inspired, almost always, by local landscapes, nature and wildlife and often by Cornish poets too. I also aim to use as much fleece from the beautiful local sheep as I can - a truly Cornish celebration :-) Good for my - increasingly international! - friends to know and also the many tourists who love visiting this beautiful county.
I'm also hoping to network with other small Cornish businesses and to share and learn from them as much as I can in this growing, step by step business adventure!
'Cornwall is renowned for being a special place, rich in heritage and outstanding natural beauty. It is home to a vibrant business community producing an extensive range of artistic and hand crafted items, specialty food and drink, through to highly specialist technical products, and has built a reputation for quality and excellence. The Made in Cornwall scheme showcases the best of Cornish-made products.'
