Stapleford open studios

I’ll be setting up work at Stapleford Granary this afternoon, ready for their open studios event this weekend. The show will be open 11am till 6pm and will include painting, pottery, jewellery and other wonderful crafts. I’m looking forward to seeing what all the other exhibitors bring along!

New commission

I’ve been having fun working on a new commission, in this case adapting a couple of the pieces that were shown at Espresso Library from mid-May to early July. I’m really pleased with how they’ve developed in response to how they’ll work alongside other features of their future home, taking on more vibrancy and movement in the process. I think they are at the stage now of feeling ‘finished’.

The images below show some close-ups and the piece(s) as they currently stand on my ‘work in progress’ wall which is just over 2m wide and is directly in front of my desk. A good use of space, this allows me to contemplate about how work is progressing while seeing it in a domestic setting, which I find extremely helpful… and shows that you really don’t need a lot of room to be able to enjoy art that can make a real statement and transform a space.
