And Now, On a Different Note Altogether


I've been keeping the post-exhibition anticlimax at bay by cracking on with another project, namely a set of illustrations for Borders Council's new art education initiative Living Room, which aims to redress the balance of primary school art teaching by introducing ideas about architecture, form and the built environment, with reference to five borders towns, numero uno- Peebles, above! I must say it is really refreshing to work in this way again, ceramics firmly to one side for the moment!

Snaps from my Home Sweet Home



Had a nice night on tuesday heralding in my exhibition at the Tiny Gallery. Here's a couple of snaps of the work... more to follow when I get hold of Garry Maclennan's superior shots! Oh yes, and you can go to my newly created Flickr majiggy and look at a handpicked selection of the plates, tiles and jewellery which comprise Home Sweet Home.

Schneaky Peek


Here I am installing the work earlier today in the Maisonette, looking rather pleased about it... and anticipating tomorrow night's opening... after which, don't forget, the show runs from the 17th until the 28th of February. N.B Work can be collected from monday the 1st - Wednesday the 3rd March.
I've written a piece about it on Central Station (the art networking site through which I got the opportunity to exhibit)... you can read it here.

Home Sweet Home at the Tiny Gallery


Hello One and All! Let's put my relative slackness on the blogging front (there's always some excuse) down to the fact that for the last month or more I've been day in day out sitting at my desk diligently decorating (nice bit of alliteration there) ceramic plates for my show in the Tiny Gallery in Glasgow. Now the exhibition is soon to be upon us (or me, more specifically), opening next tuesday the 16th at 6.30-9pm... all readers are welcome (I feel I can say this safely, given that a facebook party-style rush is hardly within the realms of possibility.) Here then, is an invite with all the relevant details, and a map which informs thee of how to reach the Tiny Gallery, itself located within the Made in the Shade Maisonette, De Courcy's Arcade, Cresswell Lane, Glasgow. A gallery within a shop within an arcade, down a lane, no less! The show opens to the public on wednesday the 17th and comes down on the 28th of february - the final weekend will be marked by a closing sale, during which pieces can be taken away to loving homes - more details to follow closer to the time, no doubt. I realise that it probably appears from the flyer and the photo I posted a while back that I've only actually made two plates, so to rectify this impression, here's another snap... I promise you, there are many more besides, which so far I haven't had time to photograph... but don't want to spoil the surprise, do I? Hope you can make it!
