A couple of things…

frosty branches platterHello there … well, without wanting to get too Christmassy on the 7th November, I just thought I’d share a couple of things here with you.  I delivered this ‘Frosty Branches’ platter along with a nice big selection of other pieces to Gallery Nine in Bath yesterday, for their Christmas exhibition, which opens this Saturday 9th November and is on until 24th December.  Here is their website: www.gallerynine.co.uk

I also delivered lots of new work to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park – www.ysp.co.uk – for a craft showcase alongside the exhibition of Angie Lewin’s (www.angielewin.co.uk)work that is on from 16th November to 23rd February 2014.  I am so pleased to be there at the same time as one of my very top favourite artists!

I only just managed to get enough work together for these two shows – my kiln broke down after a power cut four weeks ago and I’ve only just managed to get it fixed, after much toing and froing – it needed a new set of elements, a new controller and then a new thermocouple … I’ve just turned it on now for a test firing, so if that works out I will be extremely relieved!

My kiln problems resulted in an unusual amount of seconds.  So my other piece of news is that I will be having an open studio event on Saturday 14th December, which will feature the work of the lovely Teresa Green (www.teresagreen.co.uk) as well as lots of my work plus seconds, bone china mugs, greetings cards, prints etc etc.  We will be open from 11-6pm, and will serve mulled wine and mince pies throughout the day.  Here is a copy of the amazingly tidy and high tech flyer I have just made:IMG_3641So if you are in the neighbourhood, please drop in and say hello!

My next post will feature images of new work that has come out perfectly from my newly renovated kiln….!
