Following our successful Open Studios collaboration last year, I’m very pleased to be teaming up again this year with potter, Kevin Akhurst, and printmaker, Pam Hardman, as Artists at Adbury Holt. The Open Studios website – www.open-studios.org.uk – gives details of our opening times and directions – please come and see us during May!
Since my last update, my work has focussed on the Arts and Crafts movement, which, like my customers, I have always loved. I was commissioned to make two large Arts and Crafts inspired windows for a house extension in Newbury, with the theme of the Four Seasons (I haven’t been able to post photos of these on the gallery pages yet, as they are still waiting to be installed once the extension is finished). I also worked in collaboration with Hampshire-based furniture maker, Mark Ripley, to make an Arts and Crafts style bookcase for a customer in Surrey. My latest project is a wedding present with a design based on sunflowers.
