"Bits and Pieces"

Stamford Art Gallery

The Gallery is in Maiden Lane , Stamford and offers art from mainly local artists and has an excellent picture framing service.  Beverley, the owner, has a number of my pots on display and for sale.

Connect Independent Art Fair

The fair took place in February 2019 in The Mall Gallery, The Mall, London.  I had four of my pots on the Stamford Fine Arts stand courtesy of Jeff Stone.  Jeff sold two of them - my first sale in a London exhibition.




Anglian Potters

The last Anglian Potters meeting and demonstration featured Craig Underhill.  It's always interesting to hear how potters have developed their career and to see some of the techniques used in their work. Craig was an excellent presenter and very generously shared his knowledge.

Clay Craft Magazine

Pleased that one of my pots was featured in an edition of the Clay Craft magazine.  The pot was subsequently sold at the Connect Independent Art Fair, London

ESC Artists exhibition and market

I have been invited to join the ESC (Escape the Ordinary) Artists events for 2019.  I'm taking part in the autumn exhibition which takes place in the Art Gallery, Stamford, from 21st October to 3rd November.

Open Upp Art

A "pop up" art gallery was opened in Uppingham from the 2nd to 23rd March and again from 8th April to 4th May.  Work from over forty artists was exhibited be in the gallery including some of my pots.
I was fortunate to sell eleven of my pots, three of which went to France.

Stamford Pottery Market

The annual Stamford Potters Market was held on 5th and 6th May in the Art Centre.  Around twenty potters from the area took part and the two days were extremely busy.

Summer of Ceramics - Doddington Hall

The Summer of Ceramics exhibition will take place at Doddington Hall near Lincoln.  It will open on Saturday 27th July and close on 8th September.  It will feature the Hall's collection of ceramics that has been built up over the last three hundred years.  The exhibition will also include work by current international and national ceramists.  I have been lucky enough to be accepted for the exhibition and some of my work will be there to view and buy!

Anglian Potters - Summer Exhibition 

The Anglian Potters Summer Exhibition will be held in Cambridge as usual but not in Emanuel College.
All Saints church will be the venue with the exhibition opening on 10th August and ending on 25th August.  All Saints is a good example of a Victorian church with leading members of the Arts & Crafts movement being involved in its stained glass windows and wall decoration.

Yarrow Gallery Christmas Exhibition - Oundle, Northants

I have been invited to take part in the Yarrow Gallery Exhibiton.  The exhibition opens on 27th November and closes on 7th December.  It's a popular exhibition and I was delighted to be invited to take part.
