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.

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-

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!

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.
