Gladstone Pottery Museum picture

I was inspired while watching The Great Pottery Throwdown to make a picture of the Gladstone Pottery Museum where the series is filmed, with the iconic bottle kilns that Stoke-on-Trent is famous for. The picture is all copper. Flame coloured on the kilns and buildings and alcohol ink on the copper sheet background.    I’ve also made a piece with copper butterflies painted with alcohol ink that I call ‘The Great Escape’ as one butterfly is outside the frame representing that it’s either escaped or hasn’t yet been pinned to the board. It’s up to the viewer to decide.   ...

Art in the Pen

It’s been a while since I’ve updated the blog, but just a quick one to say I’ve been accepted for the “Art in the Pen“ art and craft fair in Skipton in August. I don’t do many craft fairs but I went to this one as a visitor last year and thought it was excellent with a really high calibre of exhibitors, which is why I applied. In preparation for this I’ve been making lots of new wall hangings using copper with wood backgrounds. I’ve also been using alcohol ink and pyrography so lots of different things will be available...
