Commissions and other things

A short update on current activities…

Earlier in the year I did a commissioned piece in porcelain for artist Jessica Crisp, for her collaborative project with poet Richie Mccaffery. Their work is now exhibited at Edinburgh Printmakers, and incorporates my piece. http://www.edinburghprintmakers.co.uk/exhibitions/the-written-image

Here’s a close up of the finished piece:

Always interesting to make something completely different from my usual work from time to time, and in a material I haven’t used for a few years; paperclay porcelain. Certainly enjoyed working on this project.

For anyone over in north America, I have an image of work currently featured in Ceramics Monthly in the ‘Exposure’ section- http://ceramicartsdaily.org/ceramics-monthly/ceramics-monthly-december-2013/

And soon I will get my copy of Travel, Tourism and Art- I’ve co-authored a chapter (with Kevin Hannam) which explores tourism, taxidermy and ceramics in this new publication. Very much looking forward to seeing it in print! http://www.ashgate.com/default.aspx?page=637&calcTitle=1&title_id=19633&edition_id=1209349522

Next on the agenda is starting some new work but continuing with the taxidermy theme- will be starting with some drawing, reading and test pieces.
