May 2019

Each year at Kips Bay in NYC, celebrated interior designs are invited to transform a room in a show house and this year I’m thrilled that my bronze sculpture ‘Ophelia’ commissioned by Simon Orrell Designs has been showcased by Richard Rabel in his stunning design for the Gallery Entry and Lower grand Staircase. See the image on my instagram!

Also this week I have been invited to hold workshops at a school nearby working with the pupils to create small bas relief plaques! Am excited and naturally nervous about this! Its amazing how much planning is needed when undertaking such events. I’m really looking forward to seeing where their imagination takes them!

Am currently working on ideas for a commission for a panel and enjoying the process. Images to follow in the future. In the meantime here’s one of the newest works fired and glazed!

The Serenade

Recently I’ve discovered that there are a number of my fantastical pieces in the collection of the WMODA Weiner Museum of Decorative Arts in Florida. http://wmoda.com There is an exhibition on at the moment there until June 28th called Fantastique where there are a number on display. It has come as a complete surprise and needless to say I am thrilled to be alongside some of the ceramic greats the likes of William de Morgan and Daisy Makeig Jones! The pieces include this one called Serenade a finely carved bas relief.

I shall be exhibiting some recent pieces here in Norwich in April 24th –28th at the Forum in the Spring Art show pop along if you get the chance.

2019 commissions

This year has started with 3 commissions all now either drying, being carved or samples being created and the go ahead given! Images will follow in due course…

In between these I am finally starting on carving a new body of work more experimental and abstract whilst still maintaining the fine skills – and with the assistance of a magnifying glass! Designing patterns as a base then abstracting them the attached image is one such.
