The exhibition Transformation has now come to an end. We hope everyone who came to see the artworks enjoyed the show and thank you for coming and showing your support and also a big thank you to all the people who helped put the show together.

After all the hard work it finally worked out and I am pleased to say that we managed to sell some of the artworks on display so thank you very much to al those people who perched the work.

It was an enjoyable experience and I hope there is more like this to come in the future.

CGP London 30th Annual Open Exhibition 2014, private view pictures

It has been some time now since the end of the 2014 CGP London 30th Annual Open Exhibition, although I thought I would upload some of the photos taken from that event.

I was really pleased and thankful to get the opportunity to display my work in London and I particularly liked the exhibition's approach to submitting work as there was no selection process involved. This made for an away of diverse artworks all very unique and in some ways difficult to relate to any kind of style. 

As you can probably imagine the show was crammed full of artworks and this created an engaging experience but on the other hand artworks did not have their own space to breathe and so it did feel a bit cluttered. This was defiantly noticeable in terms of the artworks such as mine sitting on the stands, for me personally I think these 3d objects needed more space as each piece was obstructing each other and making it difficult to fully view and appreciate the works.

Other than that it was a memorable show, thank you CGP London.

All are Welcome to...

Exhibition: Transformation at the 44AD Artspace, Bath, UK. 
Opining Times: 13/1/15 - 17/1/15 12pm-6pm and 18/1/15 12-4pm.

This exhibition brings together four artists who work predominantly with clay.
Why do these makers choose to work with clay?
‘Transformation’  is an attempt to raise awareness of clay’s ability to undergo intimate manipulation and subsequent physical changes using heat, as an expression of our ideas and feelings, made solid.
Charlotte AspreyMartin HarmanWen-Hsi Harman andRichard Winfield discuss their motivation for continuing to work with clay. For these artists clay is the fluid starting point, ‘transformation’ describes the process; the outcome is derived from something intangible from within, frozen in three-dimensional reality. 

Thank you to Lucida for helping us design the poster and booklet.

Applying colour to two of the new ceramic artworks started 6/12/14

(Spraying the work with second round of coloured slips)

(All coloured slips have been applied, its now ready for the 3rd firing)

Over the past week I have been continuing to work on the two new ceramic pieces started on 6/12/14. Today I finished spraying all the colours onto the surface so the only thing left to do is put them in the kiln and fire them, then apply the glaze. Soon they should be complete.
