Chichester Art Trail
I am really looking forward to the Chichester Art Trail which is on for the next two weekends including the bank holiday Monday. Fingers crossed for fine weather because I am showing a new body of large outdoor work which will just be lying around Lou Johns amazing garden.
She and I have come together this year in one place so you get to see both her wonderful tall sculptural figures and my large handmade ceramic seed pods all in one place.
This beast is made from crank clay that has been fired to 1240oC. The open seed area has been glazed a bright orange (unusual for me to pick up a glaze I know...not sure what came over me!)
And like most of the others that I will be showing, the poor thing had to go through the trauma of a smoking.
I couldn't get it into the normal smoke bin (I so need a bigger boat ops! I mean bin) so I had to make one up from a mix of fire bricks and old broken kiln shelves.
Please come along and see us in Fishbourne. We are venue 21 on the Trail and will be open from 10.30am until 5.30 each of the five days and both of us will be on hand to talk about our work and answer any questions. I might even take some clay along and do some work.
