I thought I would do a Christmas giveaway across Instagram and Facebook to say thank you to everyone for all their support throughout the year and this Christmas.
The little vase and ceramic hangings are all hand painted with colourful glazes and fired to over 1000 degrees!
There is still time to enter just click here for Instagram or here for Facebook!
I recently was the guest artist for Art Cores Artist Takeover. I was given a 20 minute platform to talk about: my practice, the materials I work in, research, show some examples of my work, and answer any questions people may have. It was a great experience and surprisingly difficult in a sense that you aren’t talking to a person face to face! You can watch the full 20 minutes below! Enjoy!
I have been lucky enough to receive the Graduate Commission for the 2020 Atmosphere Festival which takes place every year in Worcester. The theme of the festival is “Love our World” and the commission required to be made as sustainably as possible. I decided to create artworks which were made from recycled wood as the armature and old newspapers for the outer shell.
I did a lot of research into papermache as I haven’t used it before and even though I have had quite a few problems with surface finish, I finally managed to achieve the surface quality I was seeking. It is great making public sculptures for a city that is using art to make positive change! It has taken me approximately 4 weeks to get them to this stage! Just waiting for some materials to arrive and then I can fire proof and paint them!

I had a great interview with David Edmund the festival Director at Severn Arts and to meet some of the team! This was made live on Facebook, the full interview can be watched below!
