This weekend the Malvern Autumn Show is taking place once again. I'll be exhibiting with the Worcester Guild of Designer Craftsmen in the Wye Hall. I'll be showing my extensive range of jewellery including the most recent new designs, alongside my metalwork pictures & wall panels, garden sticks and greetings cards.
Although it's a little early I'll also have a selection of my metalwork Christmas Decorations on display.
My studio at The Fold will be open as usual on Saturday 27th Sept 10am - 5pm

1st batch of Christmas robins have hatched!

My first Robin Christmas decorations are now available. These have been hand-made in copper & brass each one being slightly different. I shall be making a range of Christmas trees to compliment this little range in the next couple of weeks.
The original decorations are still also available - see website gallery section for details.

Fishy Designs

I have recently been asked to make a few of the mobiles that I used to produce a lot of a few years ago. I supply a gallery in Borkum in Germany called 'Insel-Galerie' with these whimsical pieces. The gallery is situated by the sea so aquatic themes are always popular......


Panel Commission


I have just finished a commission for a special long metalwork panel.


The piece is a 40th birthday present & my customer requested that we try to make the motifs personal to her husband.


The designs incorporate references to family, work & hobbies. It's interesting to work with other ideas & develop new images. I'm particularly pleased with the olives & the Worcester pear although the Canary Wharf tower turned out quite well too!


Although I generally make these pieces as more abstract patterns I am happy to work with customers ideas if I feel the designs will be suitable.

H art piggies Emin & Gormley


Worcester News published an article today to promote h.art. Several of the artists involved popped to Blue Ginger Gallery http://www.blue-ginger.com/ the other morning to say hello to the resident pigs Emin & Gormley who welcomed the attention (& the apples!)



The Malvern Gazette also photographed myself & Alex Wilkins with the very well behaved Gormley.

Both Blue Ginger & The Fold have been included in the East region of h.art and there is a map detailing the galleries & makers involved.
