A busy year

My creative life seems to be getting busier as I get older, but I am also getting a bit more organised.
This year, the group I belong to, Slowmakers, has taken up an artists' residency at Anteros in Norwich. We take it in turns to use the lovely studio there which has a large window facing onto Magdalen Street, and we also sell our work from there. I have some of my clay sculptures on display as well as my textile pieces.

I've continued with my ceramics class and I've been making porcelain pendants (samples below) I have been hanging them on silver chains or leather thongs.

I successfully entered another ceramic piece into the Anteros Open exhibition. Apparently at the Private View someone thought it was a plate of nibbles!

My woolly necklaces and brooches are still selling so I'm still making those

and I have some brooches in the shop at Norwich Castle Museum, to coincide with the recent exhibition, Inspired by Birds.

My brooches were inspired by feathers

I entered a tea cosy competition at the Port Eliot Festival in Cornwall (posted my entry - too far to travel!) I wasn't the winner, but the competition was sponsored by Fortnum and Mason and all the entries will be displayed in their store sometime soon.
