Glasbury Arts

Work now showing at glasburyarts.co.uk  by kind invitation from John Fitzgerald. A glorious assemblage of ceramics and glass, for an all to short period of time.

I will be showing, for the first time, work from a new series called Storm beach. These pieces have grown from pebbles and cobbles found on beaches near my home.

Serendipitous landscapes

My usual beach haunts have been set aside for a while as I  find myself surrounded by the glorious summer landscapes both here in Wales and Norfolk.

I have spent studio time creating large printed sheets of paperclay which I then explore to find hidden vistas. These little tiles are only ‘post-it’ size and will shrink further in the firing before being framed. A real return to my printmaking past.

Roll on dry weather!

I’m at a stage where I am itching to work with some new moulds… making them however is never my favourite job! The floor of my studio will testify to many a deluge of liquid plaster!

It’s a job I prefer to do when the weather is dry and sunny and I can put them outside on the sunny balcony at Fireworks, to dry. We haven’t had much sun recently so I returned to a previous form when I had the urge to ‘go large’ this week.

I had forgotten how heavy a big plaster mould is when filled with 5 litres of slip…as the floor of my studio will testify!
