Goodness! I have just realised that I have not written a blog for a very long time. I have been so busy that it has completely slipped my mind. There have been exhibitions to make work for – I am currently exhibiting work at Bovey Tracey with other members of Design Nation Cornwall and Devon.
The exhibition is called Materials Matter. It is on until 13th March so you have not missed it yet and it is well worth a visit.
I am also involved in Make Southwest’s Green Maker Initiative and this has been very exciting. I had a day here recently when I was filmed in the studio and interviewed about how sustainable my practice is. I have to say that I am well aware that it is difficult to be fully sustainable when you work in ceramics, and I am certainly not perfect, but I do what I can and the whole point of the film – which will be launched during the Green Makers Initiative take-over of the Mill at Bovey Tracey – is that it starts a conversation.
The big thing, which has taken up most of my time in recent months, is that I have embarked upon a Masters level degree with Falmouth University. It is online and part-time but it seems to fill most of every week! I am loving the rigour and the challenge. This term is all about collaboration and that is proving very exciting. I have built a Creative Team of four, which includes my daughter and two of her friends and we have a very exciting project in the pipeline.
I will try and post here on a regular basis to let people know where to look but for now, just as a taster . . . . Click here.
