Spanish Broom Spring Raffle Items
Small Round Handlebar Bag
25cm x 11 cm
by CB Bryan
CB Bryan started making her own bicycle bags to bring creativity and handcraft to her love of touring and bike camping. The process stems from a background in DIY sewing and her job as a fabricator for a local design studio. By making her own gear, CB feels more connected to the intimate act of packing for a trip. She shares one of her small handlebar bags with the Spanish broom community which is great for carrying a snack, some tools (always be prepared!), as well as the classic “phone, wallet, keys.”

Flamenco Bunnies Ceramic Canister
19.5cm x 12.5cm
by Jennifer Lowell
Jennifer began working with clay under a master Potter in Spain. She was hooked immediately, and her love of the art form has only grown with time. Her pieces have a whimsical, nature inspired touch - often featuring woodland creatures, plants and flowers. She delights in using alternative firings and different clay bodies- and has been experimenting with clay for the past 20 years plus. This canister is a soda-fired piece with cobalt blues- which the firing particularly loves. The flamenco bunnies were inspired by Spanish Broom and her love of functional pieces with a quirky touch.
