Studio Sale – Postponed

14 – 15 May 2022

I was very much hoping to hold an informal two-day studio sale this coming weekend (14th & 15th). Unfortunately I am going to have to cancel.
I’m just getting over having a bit of Covid – I’m getting back to normal now but it’s held me back a bit and I’m not going to be ready for the sale. If you had made plans to visit, I’m really sorry for any inconvenience and I’m sorry to miss you. I’m very much hoping to rescedule for another date in the Summer (or at the very least, hold an online sale) and you’ll be the first to hear the dates when I have them.

In the mean time, I have a great selection of vessels and wall pieces at the wonderful Streat Place Barn which is open every weekend in May – see below for a reminder of the event.

Thank you so much for your understanding and continued interest. I have lots of things planned for later on in the year, and I’ll keep you posted.

All the best

Elaine

 



Fresh Air Sculpture Show  – June 2022

Fresh Air Sculpture show logo

This June I will be exhibiting a new sculptural piece at the Fresh Air Sculpture show at Quenington, Gloucestershire – “a celebration of contemporary art in a beautiful English garden”. My sculptural piece takes the form of a cluster of hand-built individual ceramic forms inspired by reeds flowing in a river.

I will also have some of my vessels in the Pool House Gallery on site. The exhibition entitled ‘Rhythm, Pattern, Repetition’ will include some exclusive ‘reed inspired’ vessels alongside the selection of unique pieces from celebrated makers invited to make work specifically for the Pool House Gallery.

Location: The Old Rectory, Quenington, Gloucestershire GL7 5BN
Dates: 
Sunday 5 June – Sunday 26 June 2022; Open Everyday 10am – 5pm
