2013…

Little Breakfast in Delft Set

Little Breakfast in Delft Set

I feel blog guilt. It’s been quite a while, but everything has been mad busy here, which is definitely a good thing! I taught a lovely lady some lampwork skills yesterday, have a couple of new galleries lined up for 2013 already, and my etsy shop is ticking along well. On top of all this, I’m working slowly but surely on some new ranges of jewellery and beads, and hope to share the inspiration and making process with you all.

In the meantime, I have been working on some little, more affordable for January versions of some of my more popular beads, ranging from £12 to £14 for a set. I’ll leave you with some of them for now (links are clickable) and be back with some of my new work and ideas quicksmart!

On the other side of the studio…

I thought I would share with you the work of my studio mate, Jessica Howarth. Jess and I met at art college and have been sharing a studio at Arts Complex in Meadowbank since September. We both work with kilns, and both glass to an extent, only Jess works with enamel (very finely ground glass), and metal. She gradually builds up layers of coloured enamel onto copper or silver, patiently fusing layer after layer onto the base in a kiln. The ‘houses’ in the pictures are her degree show work, 3D Structures of enamelled copper, with various pieces of wearable jewellery hidden within.

Here are some more images, enjoy!

You can follow Jess on Facebook , Twitter , she has a lovely blog too, and a tumblr page

Munch in Edinburgh

I’m really looking forward to this! One of my favourite artists of all time, Edvard Munch, is having an exhibition dedicated to his prints at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, opening on Saturday. I’m dying to go, it looks wonderful. There are some rarely woodcut printed pieces, around 50 works on paper, most featuring his recurring themes of mortality, darkness, the female form and harrowing self portraits. I will definitely be heading along to see this when its on, if you are in Edinburgh I hope you do too.
You can read more about the exhibition here
And see more of his work here
