The best 9 of 2018. Doing this little thing was more empowering and joyful than I expected. Alone in the studio you constantly court failure (and sometimes, too often, achieve it) The stretching, and self criticism involved in making good work can leave artists feeling exhausted and confused. Do this, make your best 9 of the year, see what you've achieved and what your community has applauded and lifted you up for. Be proud, we are bound together by this timeless, tireless activity stretching back centuries. Art makes sense of the world, comforts us and shows us how to go
Come to the studio if you need a last minute present! Just send me a message and we can arrange a time.
These big pots took a long time to process. I had them in the studio for a long time, looking at their huge, porcelain surfaces. All the time I was watching the shallows swooping over the reeds and marshes, walking in the rain looking at fungi and crouching down examining the forest floor. Starting the drawing was a big step but by then the pots and drawings were already alive, writhing and growing in my brain, waiting to come out! " Depths of Light " opens at @narekgalleries tonight at 6 pm The marvellous @tedsecombe helped me make these pots,
