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.

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.
