London Design Festival: Tent London



















It's seven weeks until Clare and I pack up our work and travel east to exhibit at Tent, part of the London Design Festival. So I have seven weeks of making and firing ahead of me interspersed with bits of summer holiday. These are my trimmed invites, ready to send out soonish....

The show starts on Sept 18th more info here

yellow & terracotta
























Slowly a body of work for Tent is taking shape, these are the newest.  
I'm still digesting them.
{less than} 3 months to go until the show.
Head down creating a crowd of heads and objects that I can edit nearer the show.
Lots to do lots to try.





My favourite visit to a Motorway Service station ever

















My photos are a mess
Many good things I've meant to post have been and gone.
So I'm going to try to find the good moments and blog them anyway as and when.

This was taken during my favourite trip to a motorway service station.
It was Wren's playground - he hurtled cars across the cafe floor, careered around after them and learnt to make milk bubble.

stuck







































My sketchbooks seem to consist of stuck ins more and more...they are becoming scrap books I think -random bits of paper are often more inviting to work with. Here's two pages from the other day.

workshop woods and {anti} heroes





We had a quick trip to Devon last weekend and spent some good times in my Dad's workshop, making super heroes with wood and pen with Wren and his cousins.

Followed by a muddy walk to the wet woods to build a dam and launch a newly made boat.

I enjoyed some quiet moments making nail eyes for my anti hero....

a good line in drawings......


































These are photos from the experimental drawing workshop I led a few weeks ago at Bath Artists' Studios - with a great group who produced some wonderful things.  We rushed through the day with many of my exercises left unattempted - so many ways to draw so little time!
Thanks to those who took part.

A Heron for 50p

















































I was really pleased with these 50p plates, the only purchase from the Bath racecourse carboot on a freezing overcast day a few weeks ago.
The top one is a design by Patrick Heron and the bottom by Anthony Whishaw
They are printed enamel plates produced in the 1980s for the Royal Academy of Arts - printed by a company called Mikkimugs.

Now used and enjoyed by Clare and I in our studio.
