Hello all spacefruit fans.
A couple of things to mention.
Firstly a MASSIVE thankyou to everyone who came to my open studio. I met some really wonderful people & you were all so kind & said such loveley things about my work. I even sold some stuff!!!
Secondly, I have an exhibition at the Architechture Centre in Bristol throughout July & August. It’s nect door to the Arnolfini so if anybody’s over that way, pop in & have a look! It’s an exhibition of my recycled plastic jewellery, including some new bits & bobs.
& thirdly another date for your diaries, I’ll be taking part in the Hidden Art Cornwall design fair at Godolphin House near Helston over the August Bank Holiday. There will be loads of exiteing work for sale (just check out the hiddenart cornwall website to see for yourselves: www.hiddenartcornwall.co.uk)
Wow, the open studios Cornwall is now over, PHEW! It was totally exhausting but really positive, I met loads of great people & sold some work. I don’t get many chances to meet the people who actually buy my work as I sell most of it either via galleries or off my website.
A MASSIVE thankyou if you turned up at my studio over the past 9 days. It was a really positive experience & I got really good feedback on the new work I’ve been doing (not on my wewbsite). & now I’m looking foreward to my exhibition at the Architecture Centre in Bristol throughout July & August.
I just want to put up a picture of a tree I really love. I don’t know what it’s called but it’s a gorjeous colour & I love the round leaves. It’s in my landlord/lady’s garden in the wild bit outside my window. When I was a postlady there was one in particular in somebody’s garden that I delivered mail to that made my day, every day, throughout that really hot summer a couple of years back.
& here are my mange-tous & poor blue who is still ill!
My beach litter images are being used by a company who are making ethical & environmentally friendly corporate gifts. You can see their website here: www.re-everything.com & my work is under the ”bags” department in the products. (I’m not sure how they’re classed as bags but who am I to argue!?)
Well we all somehow managed to be ready just in time with milly-seconds to spare. It’s been a full on few weeks getting ready for last night & the next 9 (8 now) days but we did it! Hooray for us at Krowji.
The weather couldn’t have been much worse without us being in a hurricane zone, & it put some people off but not everybody, & the mulled wine flowed (yum) & the mice pies crumbled (mostly on my floor it seems!) & things were admired & bought… so it wasn’t all a disaster.
By the end of the night everyone had these slightly (or not so slightly come to think of it) insane looks in their eyes with the exhaustion. (& wine) But it was greeeeat & I’m sure we’ll do it all again in the nearish future.
Here’s a picture of my studio & also of a jolly jiggedy band that turned up in the foyer ( great word, foyer) this morning out of the blue to have a practice! There was a guy on a drum that seemed to make my whole room vibrate!
