This year I am exhibiting with 5 other artists in The Barn at the New Inn Middleton Cheney. This lovely venue is an absolute treasure as not only will you be able to see stunning arts and crafts you can enjoy refreshment from the pub. We are passionate about our work and visitors will be able to find out more about our inspiration, our journey to where we are today as well as watching us at work. We are delighted that on your visit you will be able to see what we have been up to over the last 12/24 months and find out more about how 2 years of lockdown has influenced our work
It would be great to see you at Middleton Cheney and there is always a very warm welcome to all visitors including dogs so why not pop in to say hello, watch a demonstration or grab some lunch.
My fellow artists are:
Anya Simmons - painter
Martin Damen - Wooden Spoon carver
Melanie Charles - Painter
Lis Mann - Mixed media
Sharon Highway (Mallory Journals) - handmade journals.
The last 2 years have seen my work develop in both shape, topic and form. I love all things natural and saw the opportunity to combine my love of ceramics with wood when during Covid I made many visits to the beautiful woods that form Edgehill. This ancient woodlands that are right on my doorstep got me thinking about how I could combine wood and my ceramics. The 'light bulb' moment came one evening in the middle of the summer, the sun was setting and there were some amazing shadows forming. As both wood and clay are formed below ground I wanted to see how I could combine the two. At my exhibition you will see the results.
On the flip side to that I love colour, and you can't beat a fiery red and bold copper that transpires from the heat of the kiln. This amazing combination can be seen in my emerging buds, wave dishes and platters.
I have been a professional potter for over 15 years and the 'bug' has never left me. I am now back doing what I love best being a designer/maker in clay, showing my work and engaging with the public.
I am also a regular speaker to art groups, WI and probus and am now able to once again offer my workshops for those wishing to 'have a go'
My work has been exhibited and sold at the Ashmolean, Oxford. Compton Verney, Warwickshire. Chipping Campden and Lower Slaughter. Visitors are welcome to my studio just contact me to arrange your visit to make sure I am in!.
