New samples and planning

I’m putting together workshops for early 2019. These will be as follows

Wednesday 16th January and 6th February Art clay Silver for enamelling. This workshop is to make pieces in art clay silver, suitable for enamel and does not include any enamelling. We suggest taking an enamelling workshop as a follow up class. These can be on consecutive days or some later date.

Thursday 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st January and 7th February
Enamelling on either copper or silver

Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th February – Etching and enamelling with Tom Lundsten £300

Wednesday 17th and 24th April Art clay silver for enamelling

Thursday 18th, 25th April and Thursday 2nd May Enamelling on silver

Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th May Enamelling on silver

The classes start at 9.45am and run until approximately 4.30pm each day. They are £170 per day, including basic materials (extra materials will be available to purchase on the day). The fee includes tea and coffee but you will need to bring a packed lunch. I always ask for 50% deposit to confirm the booking with the balance payable 7 days before the class. These classes take place in my studio in Hunmanby, near Filey, North Yorkshire.

I should also say I have a small dog. She won’t be in the studio while we are working but I always let people know in case of allergies.

There are also a few weekend dates available – please just use the contact form to enquire, letting me know the dates you are looking for.

There will also be similar classes in Denmark and details will be added soon.

Etching silver with Tom Lundsten

Saturday 16th February and Sunday 17th February 2019

The course teaches or demonstrates how one can transfer computer drawings or patterns to silver sheet by use of photopolymer film, and subsequent electro-etching. This will be a one day workshop but can be followed by a second day learning how to enamel on the silver pieces produced.

It is £170 for the single day etching course or £300 for the two consecutive days.

Limited places are available and a 50% deposit is required to confirm your booking.

New work and happy collaboration

Tom and I are are just working on the final few pieces for our next two shows.  The first will be Kunsthåndværk I Brøndsalen 18, 19, 20 and 21st October 2018 http://www.khib.dk and this will be followed by Art& at York Racecourse 26, 27 & 28th October 2018 http://www.artand.co.uk

I’m very excited about this collaboration as it’s been so much fun, full of enjoyment in what we’re doing so it’ll be great to get out and show it and of course our work will be for sale at both events.

There will be some more regular shaped bowls and some smaller pieces too so something for everyone.

We will also be setting dates for 2019 classes soon so keep a lookout if you’d like to learn some enamelling.  Send a message using the enquiry form if you’d like more information, want to book a workshop or are interested in buying a particular piece

 

More new work

I’ve had a fantastic time over in Denmark working with my partner Tom Lundsten.  We did some more pieces for our Pebble Collection.  These are etched, formed and constructed and enamelled.  Some of them are also engraved by Tom before enamelling, others are textured.  The transparent enamels show this lovely pattern of the engraved or textured surfaces beneath them.

These are some of the latest patterns.  They all began from sketches of lines from stones and pebbles collected on beach walks, mostly in NorthYorkshire although now some from beaches here in Denmark have been added to the collection.

We’ve also made a selection of small stud earrings in a circle design that matches rings Tom has made for a number of years.  He made me a couple of pairs of earrings last year for my birthday and they’ve had many compliments so we decided to add some to the range of work we now produce.

These pieces will will be available from Tom’s next show Kunsthåndværkermarked 27, 28, 29 July 2018 http://www.ovnhus.dk

 

Pebble in my pocket

 

Since late last year I’ve been collaborating with Tom Lundsten, a brilliant and inspiring Enameller from Denmark.  We are currently working on a collection of Jewellery based upon my sketches of pebbles.  We discovered that we shared a love of the sea and both really love to walk on the beaches.

This partnership has really given me a boost and focus and I’m looking forward to going back to Denmark soon.  Tom has a stand at Kunsthåndværkermarked, Beddingen and we’re launching the Pebble collection at the show which runs 8th to 10th June  www.beddingen.dk.  There will also be a wonderful selection of bowls and other jewellery.
