I’ve got a few exhibitions coming up, some of which will include my most recent work and some including work made earlier this year. Pieces from the ‘Souvenirs from Medalta’ series are in Contemporary Applied Arts, London for their show ‘Present and Collect’ which runs from Nov 19th to Dec 24th. This series of work was inspired by a residency at Medalta, Alberta, Canada in 2014.
Another group exhibition is in Devon, at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen. ‘Make 2015’ runs from Nov 14th to early Jan. I’ll have some of my new pieces not yet exhibited; the landscape inspired sculptural vessels that I’ve talked about in earlier posts. (If you scroll through earlier posts you can see the work at different stages of development.) These non functional handbuilt vessels reference Scottish land- and seascapes, and have multiple layers of colour and imagery built up through painted and printed slips and glazes. Photographic decals are applied.
I also have work at the Velvet Easel Gallery in Portobello, nr. Edinburgh for their Christmas show which opens this weekend- ‘Rock the Easel’.
There are pieces currently in Saorsa Gallery, Edinburgh. I will also be exhibiting in the Edinburgh Art Fair with the gallery 13th-15th Nov- some more of my new landscape pieces. (Which will be getting photographed this week!) . Here is an image of one of the pieces in progress a few weeks ago.
