Chatillon

Nothing better than walking round a sleepy little town collecting impressions in clay to later return and turn them into sprig moulds. I found so many beautiful old iron gates, door knobs and impressions on the rustic french walls. What a lovely relaxing week away in France taking part in Bastille day celebrations. It included lots of eating and wine drinking, along with 'its a knock out' style games and an art stand selling my hand made pieces. Chatillon is definitely a place to visit!

ART: TWISTED

ART: TWISTED

Phoenix, Brighton- from Sat 23rd
"The vogue for traditional crafts and textiles undoubtedly lies in putting them to new, distinctly non-traditional uses at the moment. Whether it's a transitional phase or the future for makers and spinners, the ethos is perfectly encapsulated be the six artists involved in Twisted, who variously turn clay into cages, puppets into tableaux, sewing machines into drawing tools and fabrics into floating installations. Life size bodies, eerie walk- through installations and dreamlike, tactile worlds are among the results in an original and magical- looking show."
