Nunhead Art Trail

I will soon be taking part in this years Nunhead Art Trail from 24th - 25th September.

Over the last few weeks I have been spending a lot of time enjoying my other passion...gardening! Since the weather has been getting better I've been loving reproducing succulents and watching them grow and flower, I thought it would be a great idea to make these gorgeous little plants some glassy homes. These are all still works in progress so check back for photos of the finished pieces. I'll be selling these at the Art Trail along with some new sculptural works so I really hope to see you there!

These are some photos from my sketch book and a drawing on the hot shop floor to refer to whilst making the bowls, along with some freshly made pieces coming out of the kiln.
