Art & Clay, at The Athenaeum, Leasgill, 19 & 20 November

This was a new venue for me, so I was very pleased to be invited to exhibit, along with an interesting range of artists including painters, potters and jewellers. The exhibition ran for two days and as usual drew a wide range of enthusiastic visitors.

The Lake Artists Society Summer Exhibition in Grasmere was open every day from 30 July till 7 September. I am very pleased to have had both my submissions accepted and enjoyed seeing how they looked in this stimulating setting.

My two submissions  were both examples of the more ‘paintily’ style that I have been exploring in 2016. These two have definite elements of landscape but still, I hope, retain their essential ceramic nature.

Again this was a lively, busy event and Frances and I each had a stand alongside a wide range of artists and craft people.
