It’s 96 days until my wedding so I thought I had better start experimenting with the ideas I’ve been having.
I’ve made a few teacup and little jar candles this evening, it was a lot of fun apart from a few burnt fingers from the wax (it gets real hot).
Some have cinnamon sticks in them!
It’s been a while since our last post, things have been up in the air and we haven’t really had a lot to post!
This week we’ve worked really really hard to get my exhibition up. Me and Sue managed to finish putting it up yesterday – and it was very ….. time consuming, and let’s just say that patience is a virtue!!!!! We have learned a lot this week, using clips and fishing wire … As well as working in the ridiculously boiling hot gallery. We can not stress how boiling it is up there.
But the final product looks good.
We were hoping to have more to post this week but things have been moving slower than we expected.

Mischievous Ceramic Children by Kim Simonsson
When Finland based artist Kim Simonsson began experimenting with figurative ceramic art in the 90s, it caught people by surprise. The term ‘ceramic’ brings to mind sophisticated objects, but his is a decidedly unusual mix of Eastern traditional materials and pop culture. “The subject of my work, as a rule, are children, animals, or something in between,” he shares. There are glazed-white ghostly children ‘bullying’ exotic wild animals like panthers and deer, or jumping into metallic puddles.

Virginia Griswold is a talented artist based in Tennessee. She currently works as an Assistant Professor of Sculpture and 3D Foundations at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN. I am in love with these pieces, which are so subtle and special.
Hi everyone, it’s been all systems go this last week or so which is why we haven’t had a chance to post!!
Last Thursday we took the Valleys Kids art group to St. Fagans National History Museum with Anne (who runs the groups), with the intention of doing some sketching and photography. It was great to be out ‘on the road’ with the group, and a nice change to be out experiencing the surroundings and trying something new.
Here are a selection of photos Sue took:
And some I took:
This week I’ve been stressing over a short-notice photography exhibition, Sue is in London for a few days, Liz has just got back from Scotland and Jan has been working so we haven’t been spending a lot of time on the studio (which is naughty I know!), but normal service should resume soon :)
