New sculptures

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017

Holiday sculptures on Knoydart, a remote peninsula in Lochaber, western Highlands, Scotland.


I split rushes and stitched them using string to create a hollow form reminiscent of a lobster pot or a buoy floating above the lobster pot!  To escape the midges I perched myself on ‘the island’ whilst the tide was out however I didn’t quite finish before the tide was lapping at my feet.


Around the headland I found a rocky bay full of sea glass, in the garage there was some nice copper wire which I hope no-one will miss.

Secret Swans – Frome

Friday, June 17th, 2016

As part of Frome Festival & Frome Open Studios, I have made a large willow and silver birch nest for the Secret Swans trail that runs from 2nd July – 10th July.

This is an exciting trail – 30 artists in 30 different venues (shops, cafes, galleries…) around the town.  The artwork is available for sale by secret auction.

The event celebrates 30 years of  the Black Swan Arts centre in Frome and money raised will go towards essential building repairs needed at Black Swan Arts & the Round Tower.
