Autumn Sculpture Trail

  RHS Garden Harlow Carr looked magnificent yesterday when I delivered my pieces for the Autumn Sculpture Trail. There are around 40 sculptures placed around the garden and the RHS have published a Trail map so you can find them all.  My pieces are along the streamside, in a little cluster near one another – […]

In the workshop today – finishing touches

  I’ve been putting finishing touches to my Cuckoo sculpture so it will be ready for the Wildlife Sculpture exhibition at RHS Garden Harlow Carr in Harrogate which I’m setting up tomorrow. As can happen with carving, the likeness and look of a piece can change in an instant on removal of the smallest chip […]

  Essential Form is  opening on Sunday 27th August, 2017 at the White Fox Gallery in Coldstream and features my stone sculpture. Here are a couple of Flock members now polished and ready for delivery to the gallery.  There will also be stone carving and sculpture in steel, bronze and clay on show. Other sculptors […]

Art& York 2017 – your special invite

  I know it seems some time away, but in ‘stone sculpture making’ terms it is no time at all so the event is firmly in my mind.  There are pieces I’ll be showing which visitors last year encouraged me to carve, so I’m looking forward to sharing these with you in October, but for […]

Stretching Rabbit Sculpture

  After the meadow next to my workshop was cut, I watched rabbits enjoying the stubble and rows of hay.  They collected mouthfulls of the drying grass, pawing and digging through it for particular strands to carry off. The geese hiss at them coming through the fence with their bounty – there’s stamping of hind […]

Sunny Bank Mills Gallery

  Sunny Bank Mills in Farsley, near Leeds was originally founded by a group of local clothiers in 1829 when they invested together to purchase land and build a woollen scribbling (combing and carding) and fulling (scouring and milling) mill. It has quite a history – in 1882 the majority share-holder Edwin Woodhouse became the […]

By Hand in Masham

  What a lovely day on Sunday – I arrived early at Masham Town Hall to set up at the Crafted by Hand event to be met by a band of volunteer helpers who carried boxes full of stone pieces and my plinths to my stand. The sun shone and it was busy, visitors flowed […]

The theme for the event this year […]

North Yorkshire Open Studios 2017 comes to a close

  This morning I’m packing up and reflecting on the last two busy weekends of North Yorkshire Open Studios 2017.  Your visits and comments have made me very happy – thankyou. So many of you have talked of ‘wanting to touch’ and the ‘huggability’ of my stones – which is a lovely thing – and […]

Sculpture in the Garden – a map

  This afternoon I’ve been putting together a map, showing the locations of my sculpture in the garden – so if you’re visiting Nunnington Hall you won’t miss any! Just as I finished I got a call from a lady to say she’d been round the garden today and loved her visit, especially coming across […]
