Autumn Happenings

Posted on

Here at Dawn Maciocia so much has been happening.  Our team has been steadily growing, we’ve had a busy summer launching new products and there are exciting times ahead… so we decided it was high time we started to blog all the goings on.

At the moment all Dawn Maciocia creations are literally made at the kitchen table!  Dawn’s house is bursting with artwork and materials; every surface covered in her recognisable animals and birds, with Sandy the dog running from room to room keeping us company.

As much as we love the craziness we are so excited to say that we’re in the process of moving into a lovely new space, giving us the room we need for our growing team and new products.  Of course Sandy will be coming with us - he’s part of the team too!

More news on our move coming soon…

This year we launched our Plush Tote Bags and Super Plush Aprons which have been proving popular.

You can order these in any of our different designs, so whether you need a gift for a friend who loves owls or dolphins, or you’d love a happy squirrel or some friendly robins keeping you company in the kitchen, we have the design for you.

We also began creating our own framed Ceramic Art Tiles, which make a great gift and really shine with their glossy finish. The tiles are available in mini (12.5cm) or large (16.5) and like all our products are handmade by us.

With these autumn vibes we are especially loving our hedgehog buddy relaxing on a toadstool in 'Spots n Spikes'.

So with Autumn finally here we are really noticing all the colours changing; the trees here in Fife are looking resplendent in their reds, oranges and golds.  The drop in temperature has us all getting out our scarves and reaching for another cuppa while we work!

The pace is certainly not slowing down though, with our big move on the cards and more exciting new products in the design phase, we are getting our heads down to make this the most colourful and busy winter possible.
