An odd pair

I made a couple of bowls over the weekend. One is Carrara Bianco marble, the other is a really nice piece of Welsh slate. These were both inspired by an exhibition at the SCVA (Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts) called FIJI, Art and Life in the Pacific. Among this incredible collection of artefacts (the largest collection ever shown) were some lovely bowls.

My bowls are more chunky, especially the legs on the Welsh slate one. As slate is a laminated material, I couldn’t make them thinner without risking them snapping off. This one showed amazing colour when rubbed. Here’s a few pictures…..

TEXTure show update

Our show texture opened on Friday evening and we’re really pleased with the reaction we’ve had. Lovely feedback,  interesting conversations and some sales. We look forward to seeing people there. Here are a few pictures:

TEXTure show final preparations

TEXTure opens on Friday and we’re looking forward to setting up and seeing it all in situ. There will be around forty pieces in the show, some simple sculptural forms and some large and detailed pieces. Materials in the show include slate, limestone, sandstone, rock crystal, glass, resin and metal. Here’s the latest poster and the launch invitation, please come along at some point if you can.

Texture show media explosion

Our show entitled ‘texture’ is getting quite a lot of support in the press recently. It started with the real spiderman in Norwich,  this was then noticed by Beyoncé, who was shopping in Anglia Square, and local hero Ed Sheeran was also passing through. Then Justin Bieber jumped on the bandwagon, but went a step further (perhaps he got a little carried away) I do admire his spontaneity, but wonder if he’ll regret including the dates after the event. I wonder who will be the next celebrity to support us!?

Laser-cut steel

I’ve been experimenting with digital design and this piece was designed for an exhibition in the Hostry at Norwich Cathedral in May. Here’s a sneaky preview.

I’ll be showing this wall-mountable piece which is 60cm diameter, with metal pins in the back, and a smaller hanging version (below) at 30cm diameter,  which could go on a wall or in a window. I hope you like them.
