Sale at Marshland Centre, Lakefield May 5 & 6

I’ll have my work at the Marshland Centre at 64 Hague Blvd in Lakefield on May 5 & 6.  I’ve made lots of new pieces, which I’m pleased with.  Take a drive as the weather is finally getting better!  There are lots of different artisans, including wood turners, gourders, weavers, sewers as well as a number of potters.

Adding a Decal to a flask

I just loved making these funny little flasks/vases.  I decided to try out some underglaze decals that I purchased from China Clay Art recently.  What fun it was using them.  I used the bits and pieces from one to decorate some heart jewellery.

Made you look, didn’t I?

This site was created because of a piece of art I made.  I created a tile (or rather two) of the QR code for this site.  The general idea was that people are so fixated on their devices that even at an art show they would be driven to scan a QR code to see what was behind it.

So the irony would be that they would be at an art show, looking at a picture about people looking at their phones while in a gallery, while they were doing the exact same thing.  Sort of fell flat though, as no one scanned the QR code.  It would also be a continuing piece of art while I updated this site just for them.   The tiles are available for sale.

The illustration above was done by my clever illustrator friend, Kevin Frank.  I asked him for a drawing about this subject and he came up with a dozen ideas.  This one was exactly what I was striving for.
