It’s my third birthday in the studio / shop at Manchester Craft and Design Centre and I still love it like it’s day one.
I am so appreciative of all the lovely customers I’ve had over those years and all the appreciation, feedback, encouragement and odd conversations, I’ve had a few good odd ones! It’s great to see how people react to the work and the unexpected ways that links them to it. It’s been great to develop collage commissions with people, assembling and archiving their treasured paper memories. And it’s been brilliant to make bespoke jewellery, tailored to people’s wants, tastes and budgets!
Thank you everyone who has stepped into my little space and enjoyed being there! Your support means I can keep doing what I was made to do! Thank you x
Scratching the Surface is a group exhibition I’m taking part in at The Craft Centre and Design Gallery in Leeds. It starts this Saturday 17 March and continues until Saturday 23 June 2018.
The exhibition illustrates the diverse styles of individual makers from various disciplines, concentrating on surface texture and pattern.
Although my first instinct is not to create surface texture or pattern, my gathering of different material and treating the metal in varying ways, does result in a contrasting and detailed palette of contents.
For the show I have concentrated on a mix of metalwork with holes, organically pierced then roll printed which results in a raised texture around the holes, and as I love communication makes me think about Braille. I have included new pieces with my signature old postcards, which have their own unique patterns, and lots of warm smoothly textured and detailed fragments of old wooden ruler . . .
A collection of work is now available from Gill Wing Jewellery in Islington, London. It is part of ‘Natural Forces’, a show that opened today and continues until Friday 10 November. My work is amongst nine jewellers including three graduates from the Royal College of Art . . .
The 1st of September was my 2nd birthday at Studio 20a, my lovely studio / shop, upstairs at Manchester Craft & Design Centre
I’d like to say thank you to all who have visited, and “come!” to those who would like to! (& sorry for those of you who are just too far away!)
