After some frustrating months ,earlier in the year , when nothing seemed to go right, I have finally finished the most ambitious ceramic piece to date . Representing glimpses of the rolling hills on a journey through the Derbyshire Dales, the piece is being 120cm long and 25cm wide has required a panoramic camera setting. Wire trees punctuate the horizon. This will be on display at Belper Art and Architecture Trail on Sunday and Monday, May 18th and 19th from 10.30 -4.30pm in the Strutt Centre. The vertical ‘Tidelines’ piece is also 120cm long and contains copper wire threaded around steel tacks . It’s one of the few pieces which works horizontally as well as vertically and is strung and signed both ways. Finally , the second ‘Journey ‘ landscape (with a green background this time) is on display at St. John’s Street Gallery, Ashbourne . Alongside two of my other ceramic pieces it forms part of their current Spring Exhibition.
