It's two months since I posted last! That was the eve of the journey back to England with the pots for the pots big day out in London and the Earls Court Road exhibition at Gallery 286. Photo above is of Andrew, my husband and me in Chelsea.
It was the best experience ever! The people where incredible and so colourful, all this was greatly helped by my staying at The Chelsea Arts Club for the first week which was brilliant, I don’t think I have laughed, talked, drunk or eaten so much in my life. Below is Jonothan Ross the gallery owner with Andrew Logan.
There was a great rush for the Ray Gun Plates and they all sold on the first night as did the Lime Mivvi Jar. Two more preview events saw more sales and in the end half the collection sold.
My old ceramics teacher Sue Nichols came to the preview with our technician of the time Sheila Williams, it has been a long time since they have seen my work in the flesh and in such salubrious surrounding it was all very emotional. Photo below of college days in the Ceramics workshop. Sue and Shelia are 2nd from left and 3rd from left and that’s me in the homemade smock (from an old pair of old curtains).
Thank you to everyone who came and who followed the journey of making all the work. I am already onto the next project and the next exhibition is in September in Petworth, West Sussex.
