Acquisition of work into Museum Collection

Chelmsford Museum in Essex contacted me recently regarding the acquisition of a piece into their Studio Pottery Collection.

I will be creating a special piece based on my "Nuclear Jug" series. This will become part of the Museum's permanent collection, which already includes works by Joanna Constantinidis, Robert Washington and a piece by Grayson Perry.

I was to say the least- over the moon- and extremely flattered.  I spent most of my student years (and subsequent career)- studying other people's Pots and visiting Museums and Galleries. It's a great priviledge- so I only hope I can do it justice- after all it's going to be on display for a very long time....

More on the progress of this "special pot"- its design- creation- and firing  as it develops!!

GQ Magazine India

Just been told that one of my pots is featured in an article in GQ magazine India.
It gets more and more bizarre every day! It took me a while to work out what the mag actually was...stands for Gentlemen's Quarterly I think? Nice.

Meanwhile, production has ground to a halt, whilst I paint and generally clean out the workshed. Paranoid about the hazards of clay dust, I decided for health and safety reasons, it was high time.
Can't wait to get it finished and back to making,






New work off to Old Chapel Gallery...

I just spent the weekend parcelling up pots ready for shipping out. Some are off to the Old Chapel Gallery. This is a new venue  for me but it's set in lovely Herefordshire. Now fingers crossed I sell some pots! Some of the pieces sent out are pictured below.

An Indian adventure

Well the dust has settled now and I can tell you about a lovely opportunity  to team up with Mumbai based company, CuroCarte. FoundedbyAnanya Birla, Curocarte aims to source work by artisans from around the world to showcase their talents in an online design/retail website. From what I gather it is mainly aimed at the emerging Indian market and all I can say is that I am "chuffed" with the link up.

I was visited by Pragya Awashthi whocame direct from Mumbai to my studio and workshop. I cannot praise Pragya enough and the founding principles of the company, the website is now live and you can judge for yourself.

I have to keep pinching myself that this actually just happened. Well back to reality, back to the workshed...
