Exhibition: Kirriemuir, Angus

The Wendy House Pop Up Venue in Kirriemuir is hosting a Summer Fine Art Exhibition with work of more than 20 local artists. I have submitted one of my clay sculptures. The exhibition organisers will donate 10% of the sales proceeds to The Teapot Trust, a Scottish charity which provides art therapy to chronically ill children.
When you visit the show, make time for a walk through this picturesque town with its characteristic sandstone buildings, some of which house inviting cafés!

Printmaking: screenprinting on clay

A few days ago I started a collaborative project together with ceramicist Jenny Charles in Bridge of Tilt, Highland Perthshire. We decorate shallow bowls with a screenprinted design. Jenny produces round clay slabs which she later shapes into bowls, using a mould. I built a small screenprinting frame and created a design which we print onto the damp clay slabs, using ready-mixed underglaze. Not until after bisque firing the bowls will we know whether we got everything right.
