From Wave to Wheel     

November 2019 marks my first external gallery exhibition - Kunsthuis Gallery at Crayke, YO61 4TT. A fabulous contemporary art gallery with the Dutch House Cafe (pancakes!!) just opposite - and I'm delighted to be part of Cecile's Shades of Clay ​exhibition.

All my pieces start in the North Sea. I swim, I draw and then I make the object that the swim (my source research) dictates. 

Not every morning's swim makes it to the potter's wheel, but each piece that emerges embodies the particular mood, energy, light and feel of a specific swim. Each piece is very different - just as each time I swim in the "same" sea, but it is never the same from one day to the next. 

​l launched my new wave of work at Coastival, February 2019 - the results of my first true year of making with as few distractions as possible, having moved into my new studio in January 2018. 

Coming up soon.... Coastival 2020.

But in the meantime, take a scenic drive over to Crayke and visit the beautiful space that is the Kunsthuis!
