This weekend I visited my Sister up in Nottinghamshire and hand delivered stock to The Harley Gallery for their next showcase 'Creature Feature' in conjunction with the solo exhibition 'Menagerie' by Susan Bryne. Susan creates fascinating ceramic animal sculptures full of pattern and print, inspired by childhood imagination and storytelling. I cant wait to visit the exhibition myself!
During the exhibition a selection of my work will be available to buy in the shop as part of the animal inspired showcase. Cushions, cards, brooches and home wares will be available from my wildlife inspired collection!
Press quote: ''Craft to make you feel like the cat that got the cream. Enjoy some animal magic with this gaggle of glorious work, with jewellery sparkly enough for any magpie and handmade home wares to help you feather your nest''
The exhibition runs from 20th June - 12th August 2012. The gallery is situated in Welbeck, Worksop, Nottinghamshire. Please visit the Harley Gallery website for more information: www.harleygallery.co.uk
Whilst at the gallery we had a look round the current exhibition 'Beastly Machines' by Johnny white. Johnny creates kinetic and interactive animal sculptures full of buttons to press, levers to pull and handles to turn. His sculptures are influenced by current affairs and and plays on words, all brought to life through humorous, whimsical creatures. These included a pig with wings, a bird on a bike and two bulls rowing a boat with little pulsing hearts! The sculptures really made us laugh, they really were brilliant and they had my 11 month year old Niece really belly laughing as she watched them move!
We also visited the nearby Rufford Park, here are a few snapshots! It was such a lovely day!
