(Permanent Exhibition of changing work)

It was a very busy and successful 2016 for me, with many new shows, commissions and ideas for new work.

In March I moved from Wiltshire to a beautiful rural cottage on a farm in Gloucestershire. This has allowed me to have a permanent collection of work at, the near by, Cotswold Craftsmen Guild’s Gallery  on Market Street, Nailsworth, Nr Stroud, where each exhibitor invigilates at the gallery twice a month.

New designs

All my surface patterns are original and unique to each piece and they have developed over the 2016 with more intricate geometric designs. I also introduced some new vase designs with fluted rims, that play on the space between the interior and exterior of the work.

 

2017 New ideas

I am now starting on some new ideas for work that I will  develop over 2017. I will start by making some quick making sessions with soft slab construction that allows me to ‘sketch’ in 3D. Alongside this I am doing 2D sketching and colour studies.

 

I exhibited my work with the Cotswold Craftsmen Guild at the annual RHS show , Three Counties Show Ground in Malvern at the beginning of May 2016. It was my first Spring show, having already exhibited at the RHS Autumn Fair, I was more familiar with the grounds- but I still wasn’t expecting the shear numbers of people and the amazing response I had from customers! It was my best ever show for sales…and I have been to quite a few over the years.  Good news is I managed to take photos of some of my work before it sold! Its now time to make some new ones for my next show at Malvern Three Counties Show 17th -19th June.
