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.
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 ..
Delighted this piece “Flowering Feldspar” is now online at ArtNet Dun Laoghaire. I so enjoyed creating this piece, exploring the cracks and crevices and allowing the foliage to burst out like new seedlings emerging out of the ground 🙂
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.
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.
Hope everyone is keeping well and take some time to listen to the birds singing
