A NEW SHAPE…

I am enjoying working with a new shape: Menhir, named because it reminds me of the stones that Obelix carries around in the Asterix books, which helped me learn to read French!

Here are the first two menhirs, which develop different themes that I have been exploring in my past work: weaving patterns and trompe l’oeil.

       

ANOTHER DOUBLE TWIST VASE…

….probably the last unless I get commissions.  It has been a fun shape to work with and who knows, I may come back to it again…

LIMITED EDITION BLUE AND WHITE BOWLS

I have decided to create a limited edition of four different bowl designs – all blue and white.

Let me know what you think – and if you would be interested!

TALL OVAL VASE WOVEN (I)

I am both delighted and sad to have sold this vase.  Made in 2014, it has been with me for quite some time so I have grown to enjoy its company.  I hope it enjoys its new home, in a restored 1960’s James Bond style mansion; I can’t wait to see the pictures!

     

BRINGING POTS TO CHINA

I had such fun showing my Geometric Collection at the Best of British exhibition in Shanghai at the end of October.  It was a wonderful opportunity to meet new friends and find out more about the Chinese market.

I made the decision to leave the remains of the collection in Shanghai, to take advantage of the various opportunities that were on offer.  I’m looking forward to future developments!

        

Thank you so much to Media-10 for arranging the show, to Cristina Liu from Rennie for making the plinths and to the wonderful Sophia Ni who worked tirelessly as my translator.

It goes almost without saying that Marcus Cole and Issy Ogden’s designs for the plinths were a total success and that without Jamie Cole’s enthusiasm and persuasion, I would not have been there – or had such a successful time.

Thank you all.

Best of British – Shanghai

This is my latest pot – warm out of the kiln and ready to take to Shanghai where I have been given the opportunity to show my pots at the Best of British exhibition.  Such fun!

The show runs from 18 to 22 October 2018.  If you are in Shanghai do come and visit me on Stand E6.

      

NEW VIDEO

Here is a lovely video of some of the pots that were exhibited at the Herrick Gallery in February.  Courtesy of Marcus Cole.

Pot video 5

The fifth video that Arnaud made is of one of the vases in my Tall Oval Vases collection.  The woven pattern is generated by straight lines running from one side of the small oval at the base to the other side of the larger oval at the lip.
