Studio Exhibition – Crossing Lines Crossing Colours

May 2, 2019

An exhibition of new overlay engraved bowl, plate and sphere forms.

Taking elements of the landscape and abstracting the marks, overlaying colour and line.

The stone walls that divide this landscape follow the geology, criss cross the land making an order, a structure, framework to which people work and manage the landscape. This division has an energy and creates a familiar pattern and an illusion of control over the landscape and the elements that shape it.

All these pattens in the landscape are but temporary marks which them selves will be in time overlayed.

The exhibition runs from 3rd June until 30th June

If you’d like more info or an invite to the PV, please join our studio mailing list.

Landscape, light and vast skies – North York Moors

April 13, 2019

Amazing light on Friday as I made my way across the moor tops to the post office. Just love this part of the world and the constantly changing light and colours. Vast skies lift the spirits. Spring is in the air and summer soon to arrive.

Thank you

Thank you for all the wonderful messages of support following our little bit on Countryfile.

Apologies to anyone frustrated by the website crashing under the weight of interest following the show. All is back up and working well.

Warmest regards from Rosedale

Springs Blossoms & Blooms

April 5, 2019

Spent some time in the garden yesterday gathering up the blossoms and blooms.

Though the wind is cold, the sunshine is bringing out the best of spring.

BBC One – Countryfile

April 4, 2019

We have been very lucky and met this lovely fella a few weeks ago, when BBC Countryfile came to spend a day with us.

This coming Sunday  you’ll be able to see our time together on BBC ONE 7th April at 7pm.

The programme marks the 70th anniversary of the creation of the National Parks.

We are delighted to have small part on the show, where we will be spinning an overlay glass plate and taking John through the process and the landscape that inspires our work.

 

Hellebore Bowl

March 14, 2019

The ‘winter rose’ is a member of the buttercup family. This year our studio garden has given us a wonderful show of hellebore, with a bright display of the glorious crowns of these elegant flowers. At a time when so few plants are daring to shine, hellebore provides a reliable source of joy as a prelude to spring.

For millennia our ancestors crafted cures for madness and depression using hellebore, though it also gained notoriety as a poison, being implicated in the assassination of Alexander the Great.

Combining an evergreen foliage with a myriad of colours atop a tall stem, this brave circle of beautiful flowers is a welcome sight in the warm March sunshine.
