It’s not been the ideal year to embark on ‘coming out’ as an artist and undertaking an artist residency. However I do feel I’ve achieved loads and learnt lots – and the residency at Hawthbush will continue into 2021 culminating in an exhibition of my work at the end of April with a pop up show.
This is the last piece I made this year as part of the residency. I love it. Earthenware clay, burnished and fired once in my electric kiln then Smoke fired in a bin with sawdust plus dried nettle stalks and dandelions from outside my hut at the farm. Searching for beauty in the everyday.
