My photos are a mess Many good things I've meant to post have been and gone. So I'm going to try to find the good moments and blog them anyway as and when. This was taken during my favourite trip to a motorway service station. It was Wren's playground - he hurtled cars across the cafe floor, careered around after them and learnt to make milk bubble.
GIVEAWAY I have one copy of Feeling Blurry and one copy of Heading Home to giveaway. If you would like to enter please leave a comment in this post and let me know which of the two you'd like. Closing date 20th June midnight GMT. Winners announced 23rd June. Thanks for reading and good luck!
We had a quick trip to Devon last weekend and spent some good times in my Dad's workshop, making super heroes with wood and pen with Wren and his cousins. Followed by a muddy walk to the wet woods to build a dam and launch a newly made boat. I enjoyed some quiet moments making nail eyes for my anti hero....
These are photos from the experimental drawing workshop I led a few weeks ago at Bath Artists' Studios - with a great group who produced some wonderful things. We rushed through the day with many of my exercises left unattempted - so many ways to draw so little time! Thanks to those who took part.
I was really pleased with these 50p plates, the only purchase from the Bath racecourse carboot on a freezing overcast day a few weeks ago. The top one is a design by Patrick Heron and the bottom by Anthony Whishaw They are printed enamel plates produced in the 1980s for the Royal Academy of Arts - printed by a company called Mikkimugs. Now used and enjoyed by Clare and I in our studio.
Not out the woods Little redhead Neat Flora Painted lady We spent a handful of sunshiny days in Cornwall over Easter and I delivered this small collection of heads to their new home - the New Craftsman Gallery in St Ives.
Welcome to my blog. I am a UK artist based in the South West. I make heads and faces using ceramic materials from my studio on a windy hill between Bristol and Bath. I use drawing and photography too. This is about my work, finished pieces and workings out, my environment, my collections and fascinations...in fact everything that goes into my head that has some sort of creative impact/outcome.
