So while my foot is up after the operation, I’ve lots of time to think about my Art. I’ve just been going through all the digital photos I took in my last week at the studio. Some of the best will end up in my ‘ceramics gallery’ on here, and I need to choose one for the exhibition poster too.
For those who don’t know yet, I’m staging my first solo exhibition at For Every Cloud gallery in Langport.The dates are from 12th to 28th May and I’ll be showing some of my ceramic heads and plaques, some lino cut prints, and an installation involving smiley disposable coffee cups and tomato seedlings.
Here’s a sneak preview of some plaques glazed with local mud:
and here are some mildly scary ones too, using coloured slips, and bonfire ash.
As it’s the Equinox this weekend I started planting the tomato seeds, which are now soaking up the warmth on my bedroom windowsill. I will be posting pics of their progress over the next few weeks.
After the solo exhibition it’ll be time to get everything ready for my next venture. My work has been chosen to go into Fusion, a collaboration between Bath Spa University creative students and the Royal United Hospital in Bath. The show goes up in the hospital mid-July, and is taken down at the start of October. I’ll be showing one or more of my large head pots in courtyards, filled with compost and a plant. This is one I’ve made specially for the show, again glazed with local mud, and my hand-prints. I’ve yet to decide on a suitable plant…
