End of the exhibition...

Last  month was a frenetic one of  sorting, packaging and shipping out work. I don't think I have ever had to send out so much work in 1 month, and most of it abroad. Nice though it was to exhibit in 3 big exhibitions at once, it was rather stress inducing!

All the work  arrived safely, and I think, to fair appreciation.  It's always nerve wracking sending out your most cherished work. Will it arrive in time - and all in one piece? Will anyone like it? I've become pretty philosophical about these things- and I guess I do create work which tends to divide opinion.  At least I gave it my best shot and I can't do any more than that. I think that even if you don't sell terribly well, having work overseas does raise your profile and does no harm at all for your CV.

Having said that, I have had some nice feedback from the galleries and exhibition organisers involved.  My Japan work although well received, is coming home. (See below) The work at Manchester City Art Gallery is still on show and my Pisces pot from has travelled across America where it is now owned by the renowned USA collector and organiser of Vasefinder- Charlie Blim jnr. I Know Charlie a little through the Vasefinder competion, and I'm very proud to have a work in his collection.

Making new pots 1

I'm busy in a making phase,
there's lots in the pipeline, but my main
focus is to get a decent body of work together. It's not always easy when the temperature in the work shop drops below zero! So it's been hard going, stopping the clay from freezing completely! it's toasty when the kiln's on mind you...







New work off to Old Chapel Gallery...

I just spent the weekend parcelling up pots ready for shipping out. Some are off to the Old Chapel Gallery. This is a new venue  for me but it's set in lovely Herefordshire. Now fingers crossed I sell some pots! Some of the pieces sent out are pictured below.

An Indian adventure

Well the dust has settled now and I can tell you about a lovely opportunity  to team up with Mumbai based company, CuroCarte. FoundedbyAnanya Birla, Curocarte aims to source work by artisans from around the world to showcase their talents in an online design/retail website. From what I gather it is mainly aimed at the emerging Indian market and all I can say is that I am "chuffed" with the link up.

I was visited by Pragya Awashthi whocame direct from Mumbai to my studio and workshop. I cannot praise Pragya enough and the founding principles of the company, the website is now live and you can judge for yourself.

I have to keep pinching myself that this actually just happened. Well back to reality, back to the workshed...
