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.

Nice to see one of our one off pieces “Landscape Study” Green over Gold on the ‘eclectibles’ page. This is one of the new series of works exploring the beautiful landscape in which we live and work within, The North Yorks Moors National Park.

‘Our new works observe and reflect the evident structure of the landscape of the North York Moors. The pieces reflect the complex layers of lines, shapes, colour and textures found there,however, the work explores the idea that its beauty is to be found in its slow construction, carved and eroded by thousands of years of land management and the harsh northern elements.’

This place is always stunningly beautiful,  the changing light on the land is always a feast for the eyes and the soul and a constant source of inspiration for our work with glass.

Been out walking and drawing today. It was beautiful, the snell wind has blown many a cobweb away.
