UK Japan Art Exhibition
Opens 23rd October- till 27th October

The annual EWA Art awards takes place this very week at La Galeria, Pall Mall. I safely delivered my piece- a 2 part Raku Sentinel sculpture today.
Last year I was lucky to receive a runner up certificate in the 3d category. Well whatever happens- good luck to all the artists!

Acquisition of work into Museum Collection

Chelmsford Museum in Essex contacted me recently regarding the acquisition of a piece into their Studio Pottery Collection.

I will be creating a special piece based on my "Nuclear Jug" series. This will become part of the Museum's permanent collection, which already includes works by Joanna Constantinidis, Robert Washington and a piece by Grayson Perry.

I was to say the least- over the moon- and extremely flattered. I spent most of my student years (and subsequent career)- studying other people's Pots and visiting Museums and Galleries. It's a great priviledge- so I only hope I can do it justice- after all it's going to be on display for a very long time....

More on the progress of this "special pot"- its design- creation- and firing  as it develops!!

Beecroft Art Gallery - new work on show!

The Beecroft  Art Gallery are running its annual Christmas exhibition from October the 6th to December 15th at Westcliff-on-sea, Southend.

Hashim Akib is showing his stunning paintings and these form the backbone of the exhibition.  I'm pleased to be back too with some new Raku work- including these little "Menhirs" - (based on standing stones) resplendent in mettallic Copper sheen finish. Very reasonably priced too!
