A blog about making art and other things using cloth, paper, paint, colour, stitch, and all sorts of exciting techniques, some of which I'm sure I still have to discover! I hope that the joy all this gives me is visible in what you can see here.

KAIROS preview at the Corner Gallery.

 Our KAIROS http://www.kairos-artists.com/ preview evening went very well, and we made a few sales straight away! There are now two weeks left for folks to call in and view the work, and to hopefully buy a beautiful piece of art. Don't forget the sea themed wall hanging that is also being raffled in aid of the SmileTrain charity. Tickets £1 each, or six for a fiver!!

These lovely hand painted ceramic plates on the left were made by Lucy Dean. Unfortunately the lighting was subdued, and I don't think I had my camera on the correct setting, but they were painted in black, white and turquoise. This photo does not do them justice.
 Next, are these wonderfully abstract pieces by Jodi Jones. Again, the colours have not been reproduced correctly, but Jodi uses lots of fabulous neutrals, some deep, and others lighter in tone, and sometimes rings of brass or other metal are embedded into her work.

Karen Moser also works with ceramics, and she
often uses objects from our modern technological age to produce pieces that resemble fossils of the future.They are distressed and blackened, but have a wonderful quality about them which is irresistable.
Again I have to apologise for the poor photographic

 On this wall, Angela Curror's work is on the top half, plus the three small square ones on the bottom right, and Jackie Harford's is below. Angela makes textile work, as well as manipulated photography, printing and book binding. Angela has most recently been inspired by the theme of 'the sea', and has produced some stunning textiles that reflect this. Jackie also works in photography, often manipulated with some wonderful results, and has also produced some pieces where she has combined photography, paper and stitch to make fabulous collages.

 I have already featured most of my work in a previous blog post, but here is a photo to show  how it is displayed in the exhibition.

Finally, but by no means least, is the food that we all made and brought along to be enjoyed by the evenings visitors! YUM!!
