It was great to finally see my pieces exhibited at the Ruthin Craft Centre on Sept 26th 2014! Mary had put my beetles on a plinth with the beautiful bowls of Roger Bennett from Dublin who I’d met and worked with last year on the Irish ‘stone’ wall. Despite being a large space it seemed a lot of people had come out for the opening, including Eleanor Lakelin – another female turner that I’d met at the craft fairs in London.
I also got to meet Mary La Trobe Bateman who had curated the show, who was lovely!
It was interesting to see that a number of us had studied on the wood/metal/ceramics/plastics course at Brighton University, including Sophie Smallhorn who was in the same year as me! Here are some photos from the show including some of Julie Arkell’s wonderful quirky figures, Eleanor Glover’s puppets, Peter Archer’s beautifully textured vessels and the stunning box oak wall piece by Wycliffe Stutchbury.
