The Zuleika Gallery's latest exhibition, Art from the Heart, features work entirely from Oxfordshire artists. All artists will be donating 25% of any sales to support our local hospitals. On show is a beautiful selection of paintings and drawings, ceramics, prints, and sculptural and 3 dimentional work. One of my large ceramic bowls and another large plate have been selected for inclusion. The online exhibition starts with a few pieces which will be sold with 100% of the proceeds going to the hospitals. All can be seen at www.zuleikagallery.com/nhs
I started doing pottery seriously after retiring early from teaching. I love being part of the ancient craft of making useful pots. My pieces are thrown on the wheel using stoneware clay which is very durable and lends itself to the subtle colour palate I prefer. I do my potting at my home so even though Artweeks won't be happening as planned, all the pots that I had ready for the event will be here for any visitors who might want to come along when the restrictions are removed. Just give me a ring on 01865 454274 to arrange a time to visit. You will be most welcome.
You can see a video of a previous Artweeks exhibition at my home and more images of my work by going to my Facebook page www.facebook.com/tampotteryoxford. Samples of my work can also be seen on the Oxfordshire Craft Guild website www.ocg.co.uk
Galleries where my work has been shown include the Wiseman Gallery, Oxford; Bell Fine Art, Winchester; SOTA Gallery, Witney; and Junction Art, Woodstock.
The plan was that glass artist Anna Gillespie would be exhibiting with me this year, but you can still see some of her work on her Artweeks gallery and her website www.anngillespieglass.co.uk
