its turned out wet...

its turned out wet .............................

well the kiln is loaded with a lustre firing ( gold on bits and pieces) , the builders are in the laundry fixing sinks and worktops so i am holed up with the computer. I thought I would find some interesting photos for you ...



this is the window of the Form gallery in Wales. The lovely Claire Wood came to see my work and asked me to fill her gallery ! Six months after i produced the exhibition 'Through the wardrobe'  a celebration of stories, childhood and handmade objects. Betty , Birdie and Lotta were the three sisters inspired by the finding of the old wooden sewing boxes. the ironing board is the plinth a reminesence of domestic life , the curtain references childhood and the making of stages , dens and hidey holes. Yee ha the donkey pulls the truck along the 'stage' floor telling yet another tale...

this is an earlier piece of work. the exhibition was in the process of being set up hence the broom on the left of the photo! the tea trolley is set ready for tea with tea pot jug and cup and saucer.I use old pieces of furniture in my work where they become something else. An old table someone was throwing away required a new life it was given casters a coat of pent a lovely fabric cover and handles.
