After several years away, I am taking part in the Arundel Gallery Trail after being very kindly offered a venue. I am really looking forward to being part of the festival again . I will have all my work on display including the new sculptural pieces from my ‘Home’ series.
These pieces are a continuation of my work combining the pewter with cast concrete, the most recent piece had me making plaster cast moulds on Littlehampton beach, with my husband acting as my assistant. We caused a lot of interest with all the local dog walkers!!
HOME: Home gives us a feeling of belonging no matter whom or what we are, whether it is a house, nest or ocean. It is a place to feel safe, comfortable, connected or part of a community.
The pictures above are showing the development of my new piece ‘ Winkle Island’. There is a section of the beach where I live in Littlehampton that is known as ‘winkle island’. It is a simple mound of shingle that is covered in winkles, each time the tide retreats 1000’s of these little molluscs make their way back to the island leaving a trail in the sand of the route they have taken. This piece has been designed and made to highlight the paths they have traveled to get back home.
All of the work from my fgpewter, the new sculptural pieces and my Maris range will be on display during the festival.
