I have three pieces in a really beautiful exhibition at Glastonbury Abbey running from now until the 28th September. You can see Journey stones, Us and Q, along with sculpture by 28 other artists scattered throughout the orchard, amongst tall grasses, wild flowers, mown paths and resplendent apple trees. The ruined Abbey is spectacular too.
I have refreshed the website with a new background image and some new pages. There is lots of new content too so if you have a moment take a look here:
Happy new year! I have uploaded a bunch of images from last years projects on to my Flickr site as a kind of visual review of the year. You can see them here.After a slow start it turned out to be a good year. No major commissions this year but plenty of satisfying smaller projects. A big thank you to all my clients for their commissions. Without them the show wouldn’t still be on the road! There were opportunities to make sculpture too. Most notably finishing “Journey Stones” for the Fresh Air exhibition at Quennington in the Cotswolds, and carving a couple of very 3D word sculptures for the Bath Society of Artists Annual Exhibition. Perhaps the best highlight was taking part in the Festival of Stone at the harbour front in Bristol in June. A really well organised event. It was great to be surrounded by people who talked “stone language”.
I am currently envigilating at the Bath Society of Artists members exhibition I at BRSLI in Queens Square in Bath. The show is open until Saturday, 10 ’till 4. So if your Bat call in and have a look. I am showing a piece called Transmutation – a word sculpture about bread and stone.
I carved this slate plant marker for Sonia’s birthday present which she really liked. I think I’m going to have to carve some more. She is growing lots of vegetables!
