Murals Wedding

Over the past month or so, myself and the wonderful Emily Garcés have been working with the local community in Allenton and Shelton Lock to gather inspiration for this giant mural that we are now creating for St Edmunds Church, based on the idea of community and individuality within community.

Over the course of the project, we have kept a loose template in mind that combines cell like patterns and flowing narrative. It's nice to see the finished piece growing as organically as the project itself has done over time.

I am so glad that I was given Emily to work with, we have bounced off each other in a really great way, (the fact that we are both bonkers helps) And I think you can already see both of of our styles within the work. 

Watch this space for the final results!

Swimming Ladies

Starting to really love Mondays. After a whole weekend of waiting with bated breath while my little treasures cook away inside the kiln, the anticipation is almost too much.

Today, three lady swimmers swam right out of the oven, rich with colour and flush in the cheeks. After three whole days of continuous exercise they are ready for a cup of tea and a big slice of cake.
