Hello, I’m Fi.
I’m a potter making ceramics informed by nature and natural forms, and I love to read too.
I’m gradually changing my online name so if you came here for ‘Make, Walk, Read’ don’t worry, you’re in the right place!
I write about nature, craft and books. The area surrounding our home is both ancient and modern, living side by side. We’re in the very old town of Abingdon (on Thames) near to the downs and the Cotswolds, and within easy striking of Oxford. It’s not as near the the sea as I would like, but you can’t have everything can you?. I love to walk in nature – I find it hugely restorative; by river or sea, up a hill or among the trees. I’m a bit obsessed with trees, to be honest. I also love books, and though writing about them came late to me, I enjoy the discipline of it, and hope the reviews I occasionally post here are useful.
Do sit down and make yourself comfortable, I’ll put the kettle on.…

At present I don’t have a schedule for this, maybe it’ll be bi-monthly, maybe it’ll be sent on the full moon…I’m just going to go with it and see what feels right. You can expect pottery news, book recommendations, nature notes, things that have caught my eye online…possibly even cakes (in recipe form…)
