The Walpole Press Day

Spent a splendid day at Somerset House yesterday, at the invitation of The Walpole, as a Crafted Mentee 2013, and, ‘rumour had it’ the Crafted Room was the best at the Press Day by far! enjoyed the company of Out of the Dark, Method Studio, Daniel Spring, Jo Thorne Billy Lloyd and Shona Marsh.  Find details of all of us here.

Thank you to everyone who took and interest in our work.

Glorious Alliums in a Lilac Root Vase

Making root vases next week… may make some more lilac vases too!

Crafted Showcase

Back from London, the exhibition at Somerset House is beautiful and well curated by Brian Kennedy & Peter Ting, Vacheron Constantin have been incredibly generous in supporting this exhibition and the Crafted Programme, the opening speeches were excellent, it felt good to be in a room full of people who understood and appreciated what it is to be a maker … good to spend time with the makers of the Class of 2013 too….the catalogue is a beautiful keepsake… just a great event all round for all makers whatever the discipline… thank you to all concerned at Walpole,
It’s is well worth a visit to this small but perfectly formed exhibition if you are in London, it’s open until 6pm tomorrow …

A tall piece 48cm high… sand carved and wheel cut… it is a challenge. Based on observations of this beautiful, though  ‘exploited landscape’.
