The move to the new studio feels more complete now I have a doorstop! It feels like the great punctuation mark in the flow of my practice and moment to reflect on which step to take next.
There has now been a solid 9 months of making in the new space and the Open Studios was a great way to open up to the world and welcome it in. I am glad to say the ‘world’ visited!
Much of my making is directed by intuition and the last 9 months has been happy conversation between tableware and figurative sculpture. I realise now on a personal level that the tableware has been a process of homemaking, literally moving in and finding function for the new space. The result is a bold quality and function combined, which, as a thrower, is a subject I return to again and again. It has really worked well. Now I feel more able to focus on the making of figurative work which is in many ways more demanding but much more rewarding for it.
Happy Saturday folks!

It is here! Herts Open Studios is less than a month away.
I will be opening my studio on 8 and 15 September 11.30am – 5pm on each day. I am location number 23 in the brochure (page 14).
Entry is free entry and it is a great opportunity to see and buy latest work from my studio. The whole of Hertfordshire is also on show, with regional trails in the following areas:
Slightly obsessed with tea bowls at the moment. Happy with these colour combinations: looking forward to setting these up for individual shots.

This is a cheeky little number: this red spotted tea bowl is very comfy in the hand.
