In Stockbridge last weekend,
I introduced my small hand held
sculptures, beyond the studio walls,
for the first time.

These are tactile ceramic discs and
I am playing with different textures
and finishes, some rough, some
smooth, and also seeing how they
relate together in groups. I am drawn
to frequently turn and rearrange
them, like playing with pebbles
on a beach.

This installation was a joy to work on with Carolyn Marr.
We have used locally-found materials - including river grit, peat,
bracken and heather - combined with clay to create a series of
artworks tailor-made for this gem of a gallery
tucked under Tindale Fell, near Hallbankgate.

The gallery is roughly 20 minutes' walk from the
car park and there is disabled access.

Linescapes is continuing at
RSPB Geltsdale's gallery in the North Pennines Cumbria,
until 28th November 2017.

You can find the RSPB blog post about the show here
