An artist who works under the name Clay Disarray is one of Britain’s top 100 small businesses.
Brinklow-based artist Lizzie Campbell has been recognised by the organisers of Small Business Saturday.
Small Business Saturday came from America and aims to raise awareness of the contribution of small businesses to the economy and the community. The campaign has focused on getting the British public to support their local small shops on the first Saturday in December.
This year, leading up to the big event on Saturday, December 5, there will be a daily celebration of the top 100 small businesses.
The businesses have been selected for their commitment to excellence and contribution to their local communities.
Clay Disarray’s day in the spotlight will be on October 31 and Lizzie is working on Halloween themed spooky sculptures for the occasion.
Lizzie said: “I’m delighted Clay Disarray has been selected as one of the ‘Small Biz 100’ this year. It’s really hard for anyone running a small business to spend sufficient time and resources on promoting their work as we have to wear a number of different hats on any given day – so being offered free national promotion in this way is just brilliant.
“Due to the demands and pressures of modern life, I more than appreciate how convenient it is for people to shop at large chain stores and supermarkets, but it’s so important to remember those small businesses out there too. I’d implore everyone to keep an eye on Small Business Saturday’s social media platforms over the coming months to discover the wealth of talent and specialist services out there.”
Lizzie also specialises in creating bespoke polymer clay portraits and wedding and special occasion clay cake toppers. Examples of her work can be found at www.clay disarray.co.uk.
