I have a number of new pieces of work now in the Gallery.. Stella Mays has sent me three new canvases of her excellent pastel paintings. I picked up new sculptures by Karen Fawcett at Potfest Scotland which includes the lovely swallows pictured above. Also now in stock is work from award winning Canadian artist Marina Dieul. I have a selection of limited edition prints, cards and a poster of her excellent mice pictures.

A selection of John Noble-Milner (Geckoman) bronzes has also arrived .. I had John's work in several years ago and it is great to have him back exhibiting with the gallery once again. The Silvery has also restocked me with a selection of their nature based silver jewellery.

I will once again be exhibiting and demonstrating at Potfest Scotland this year.

Potfest returns to the Perth area for its 23rd year in Scotland. This years show is once again Potfest at the Palace, in the wonderful grounds of Scone Palace, the home of the Stone of Destiny, the crowning site of former Scottish kings.

Over 80 ceramic artists from across the UK, Ireland and France will be selling their work at the show. There will also be demonstrations and an opportunity to have a go and get stuck in.

This years Potfest will also feature the competition on the lawns, something that is a regular feature at Potfest in the Park in July. All the artists are given the samee topic to create a piece on and the entries form a great feature exhibited on the lawns. It is always fascinating to see how so many artists enterpret the same subject title. Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favoutite piece.
