Next weekend we open our studio doors again for the Christmas Open House Festival, we will be showing the work of 12 artists including ceramics, art, wood cuts, jewellery, cards, bags, scarves and some yummy vegan treats. Doors are open between 11.00am and 5.00pm on Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th November, Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th December and Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th December. Below is a sneak peak at some of the lovely pieces you will be able to get you hands on from out in house ceramic artists.
Above are some beautiful cups by Gosia Giec. Made from black clay with white slip painted on and textures scratched into the clay.
Above is the work of Kathy Laird, some of her recent pieces have featured these gorgeous fish motifs. Kathy has used a technique know as scrafito, where she paints coloured liquid clay onto the bowls then scratches out details on the fish to create tis stunning effect.
This final picture is the work of Helen of Helen Rebecca ceramics, here she is pressing leaves into the clay to create textures and then drying the clay over bent card, once the pieces are leather hard she will join them together to create these sculptural and elegant vases. All the pieces above will be available to buy at the open studio, so do come along and say hello!
