Support Artists by attending Exhibitions and Galleries if you can

Work in progress porcelain piece

We are entering a new phase in the Carona virus lockdown in Ireland tomorrow (29th June) and more shops and restaurants will be open but social distancing will be in operation. It’s still such a strange time for people but slowly things are improving and changing. I’m lucky to have access to my own studio, it means I can work whenever it suits me and I’m still making work, like many other Artists and creatives. If you get a chance support Artists by attending Galleries and exhibitions and appreciate all that has been created during this unprecedented lockdown.

Sculpture in Context 2020 and Ceramics Ireland Triennial 2020

I am proud to say have I been accepted to exhibit at the Ceramics Ireland Triennial series this year at Farmleigh House, Dublin and Sculpture in Context 2020 at The Botanic Gardens , Dublin.

I am busy working away on a number of pieces for both of these exhibitions and details will follow soon … Watch this space ..

I was delighted to hear I got accepted into the ArtNetDLR “Earth” online exhibition , it will be launched soon and I will post the image then 😊

I have been busy with other new work , at my kitchen table this week. I’m enjoying the extra time to explore new avenues and new possibilities with clay and I’m learning a lot. It’s sad not seeing some of my family but we are talking online which is something.

I decided to take part recently in The Artist Support Pledge . It’s an initiative to help support all Artists who have lost the ability to sell at Exhibitions and Gallerys during this difficult time. The Porcelain ceramic Piece with gold lustre glaze titled “Opening” 2019 , has three pieces, largest piece is 12cm diameter x 6cm. €200. Plus Post and packaging. Pm for more details.

Working away in the sunshine

We are in week 8 now of lockdown in Dublin and the sun is shining and the birds are singing this week which is fabulous for the morale 😁

I am working away on my pieces for exhibitions due to hopefully happen this Summer or Early Autumn? I did my submission for Sculpture in Context 2020 last week.

I was delighted to have my submission for Artnet DLR “Earth” online exhibition accepted last night ! Watch this space for images of that piece.

Working at my kitchen table today

Hope everyone is keeping well and take some time to listen to the birds singing
