The C word and other things

Well it's nearly upon us the festive season and thoughts are going to the dark nights drawing in and getting festive with decorations etc. I am not doing a lot this season as I need to ease myself back into full time work so won't be out and about at fairs this year.

I am on the other hand curating an exhibition with Anita Burrows at Pendle Heritage Centres gallery space. Formally the Pendle Art Gallery which we are hiring out to showcase a few of the artists who work at Higherford Mill and of course ourselves.

So come along and see for yourselves. There will be traditional skills such as printing, glass and ceramics on display to purchase and take away with you and there will also be some surprises and some weird and wonderfulness as expected from a Higherford Mill production!

We are opening at the end of each week from the 27th Nov till Christmas week 
where we are open daily until 2pm on Christmas Eve
with a gift wrap service for those who play Christmas present chicken!

See you there :-)

Will blog some images nearer the time too.

Art Sale and Otters on their jollies

Well Sunday was fabulous. Meeting new customers and friends in a fabulous and in a relaxed atmosphere with coffee too. Thank you to all who came to visit, browse and buy.
Mungo, Frank, Finlay and Jessica have now gone to their forever homes too.

and after the sale I was asked to take along Clarence and Claude to a new gallery in Clitheroe who have not had ceramics before

it was lovely to meet Sarah and Andy the directors of the Longitude Gallery
and I think Sarah fell a little bit in love with Claude the Otter.
So they are now on their jollies in Clitheroe for a bit so I do hope they are behaving.
Go see them and say hello from mum ;-)

So the rest of the works including the very new owls and sheep Betty and Burt 
will be in my online shop as soon as I can get them in there. 

I am actually back in the studio this week after how long
I couldn't say so tidying ready for me to create some more new work!

Art Sale at the Fence Gate Inn, Fence, Burnley

So tomorrow I am setting up for my first Art Sale ever at a bar/brasserie/restaurant. 

I was approached by Kevin Berkins owner of the Fence Gate Inn to create something a little bit special 
for his refurbishment of the 
Fence Gate Inn pub/restaurant a few months ago and 
Fitzroy now resided over the bar surveying his manor so to speak. 

There is also a drawing of some hunting hounds and Duncan now sits proudly above the fireplace in the Restaurant area too. 

So tomorrow you are invited to come and say hello and have an exclusive preview of my new drawings and ceramics from noon to 5 pm in the function room off the bar area.

Framed by Richard Davis of Dysons Framers in Nelson 

and some very new ceramics too 

So hopefully see you there 
come and say hello, 
have a browse at your leisure 
and maybe purchase your very own piece of art 
or have something commissioned from me for your home.

New in my Etsy shop

I am currently uploading work into my Etsy shop as my laptop has died after water damage and I can't access the back end of my website...
