Celebrating Art in the Garden 2

Its been a long hard slog getting here but I finally managed to get my work finished and ready to be photographed for Celebrating Art in the Garden. Well I say finished I am actually having to remake one piece due to tripping over the foot peddle on my wheel, setting it off full blast, with a piece I had literally just finished flying off in all directions! The moral of the story, don’t keep going when you’re tired. A lesson I will never learn and hey its only mud!

Here’s a few work in progress shots of MerNeith and the finished thing. MerNeith may have been the first female pharaoh and the earliest queen regent in recorded history and seemed a fitting name for such an elegant looking piece.

Into The Deep is another new piece. The steel sections were made by Tim from Cobbaton Combat Collection, they have been made to rust over time (on the outside, the inside is sealed to protect the metal). I love this shot that John Russel took in my friends stunning garden.

London Craft Week

I am really looking forward to being part of Design Nation’s Marks & Tools exhibition as part of London Craft Week not only because of the stellar line up but also because it has given me a chance to show some of my more expressive work. Platters make a great canvas and I have enjoyed the freedom to make marks with brushes and bottles of glaze.

The finished work will be on display at the Gallery@Oxo from the 4th-7th May
