Country Living October Issue....

I've been lucky enough to have my work featured in the current issue of Country Living magazine...my etched feather decorations have become quite popular!

 
I have some pieces listed in my Etsy shop....& will be taking a few to the Malvern Autumn Show this weekend too.
 
Copper & brass feathers

Brass feathers
 
Looking back at images on my computer I found a couple of old images of feather related things.....This was a silver brooch I made for a commission in 2006.  The other picture was an entry for the Big Draw event at Blue Ginger in 2014....I can never resist a feather if I see one laying on the ground so I have quite a collection!

Next show & new work!

Sorry it's been a while.....

The summer has been great for us - lots & lots of visitors to St Ives.  Some familiar faces & returning customers from last year. 
I'm now in full swing for Autumn & have been making lots of leaves...some for orders, stock & my current display at the Guild of Ten in Truro.
  


My next show is back in Malvern at the Three Counties Showground for the Autumn Fair with the Worcestershire Guild of Craftsmen.  It will be lovely to catch up with everyone again. This weekend Sat 26th/Sun 27th Sept.

I've been busy making a few new things recently such as my badger brooch & earrings - finally! This design has been in mind for about 18 months! I'm rather pleased with the pieces though...what do you think?

This design has also been made into a greetings card along with popular seagulls (?) & 2 new Christmas motifs: Mistletoe & Fir cone.
 
  


 
My seagull jewellery has also had little extra's added - most visitors to St Ives have had a seagull 'experience' at some point!



For Christmas this year I have created some new fir cone decorations in etched copper & brass. I think these would compliment my other leaves/feathers very nicely. Prices from £10 - £14 each.

I hope to see you either at Malvern or down in St Ives sometime.  I will try to keep my Etsy shop updated too!

Fresh Air Sculpture Exhibition 2015

Monday was a fabulous day & we made an early start to make the most of the exhibition at Quenington Old Rectory in Gloucestershire.  Fresh Air is a bi-annual event which I first visited 4 years ago. This is the 12th time this stunning show has taken place. The setting is so fabulous, beautiful grounds & gardens & the careful placing of such a variety of sculptures means there is something to appeal to everyone. Some of the pieces are part of a permanent collection but the majority are for sale as part of the event. I took a vast amount of photographs of course. I would recommend purchasing the guide as the pieces are only numbered on site, to find out the artist, materials & price you'll need the catalogue.
The images below are a selection of my favourite pieces...on several photographs I am only giving you a hint of the sculpture as I really think you should visit them & see for yourself if possible! The event has only just started & is on daily until Sunday 5th July.  More information can be found on the website


















































 
When I get chance (& I'm not so tired from Cheltenham Open Studios - still happening by the way - time to visit only half way through...) I will try to add the artist details to the sculptures!
