About

What is an alphitomancy?

alphitomancy
/al'fituh.mansee/.
noun
a means of divination using special cakes that are said to have a pleasant taste only for persons with a clear conscience.
[French alphitomantie, from Greek alphitomantis a diviner who used barley meal, from Greek alphiton barley meal]

'alphitomancy' is the best word I know, and not just because it has something to do with cake. It is a link to a past which is filled with absurd, odd, unexpected things.

Am I an alphitomancer? No. Although sometimes my cakes don't work out, so I might use that as an excuse and predict a terrible future for someone.

I look for the absurd in nature, in lines, colours, textures and contrast and exaggerate what I see in my products. I also tend towards the blunt and literal and play with words as well as shapes. I so very much hope you like looking at the things I've made - they've all been made with love.

    After years of doodles, one-offs and gifts to friends, this is my shop! I love looking for lines, contrast, texture and colour all around me, and tend toward the fantastical. I take what I find in nature and exaggerate it.
