December Update

Water Buffalo

While I am continuing to develop ideas and draw also had a bit of a tidy out of the workshop – do all artists hoard stuff or am I alone? On finding old pieces I was not entirely convinced of hence just heaping them in dark corners with  able assistance the hammer came out as you can see from the photo!!!

I still have some lovely pieces properly stored ready for new homes 3 of which are wending their way across the Atlantic.

 

November Update

Water Buffalo

Have been busy recently with drawing and designing new pieces. I’ve really appreciated taking a little time to develop ideas and hopefully progress the work. I have been life drawing daily which has been fantastic and inspiring and brushes up on the old pencil skills! Hoping to start making again and experimenting further with the designs in clay! In the meantime I shall leave you with a close up image of a piece I made earlier this year of Water Buffalo, a finely carved plaque measuring 35cm square.

 

September Update

Zues

After a successful Art in Clay – a huge thank you to the organisers! – I have had a little time off to recuperate and now about to get back to the drawing board with the ideas for new work that keep appearing in my minds eye! While there are a few lovely pieces still awaiting new homes this framed bas relief plaque has found a new owner.

 

July Update 2

Reclining Naiad

This week has been spent glazing the two commissions I’ve made waiting for the extreme heat to die down a bit before the kiln goes on!

The sculpture for Bonhams fired well and they have received it intact thank you MBE! so now just waiting for the images to be given the ok to be published which is usually a few weeks before the sale – this year the 9th and 10th October at the Knightsbridge galleries!

Been working on a few pieces for Simon Orrell Designs too, a piece destined to be turned into bronze and a lamp base design a close up of which is the image alongside. Its inspired by a desert rose those amazing crystal formations. 


July Update

Reclining Naiad

Its been a busy few weeks I have been asked by Bonhams to make a piece for their October sale so have worked hard designing and making what will hopefully prove a show stopper! As yet I cannot share details but keep an eye out over the next couple of months!

Two lovely commissions have also been undertaken and now waiting on them to dry ready for firing -won’t take too long given the glorious weather we’ve been having! Images again to follow in due course!

I'm including a pic of a little figurative sculpture that is kiln fresh a reclining naiad ready for exhibiting at Art in Clay next month!


June Update

The last couple of weeks have seen me working on new designs for commissions of which more news will follow soon! I have had images back from a sculpture I made in ceramic for Simon Orrell Designs that they have turned into a limited edition of 20 bronzes and I am really happy with the result!


May Update

These last couple of weeks have been busy getting work ready for Art in Clay plus working on a couple of commissions that have come in for decorative plaques. Much glazing and firing has been happening alongside and although the image doesn’t necessarily show there are some experiment glazes on a few of these hoping they work out!!!!


In Progress

The last few weeks have been busy working on pieces for Art in Clay, having recently completed a commission for bathroom inset tiles the design of them inspired me to work on a similar theme abstract interpretations of water and subsequently water nymphs aka Naiads.
