I’ve been making some small pewter flow bowls, again a request from an ENOS visitor and getting ready for Pittenweem Arts Festival (venue 53; 4th-13th August)
They are cast in sand moulds, include a piece of seaweed and are poured in stages (I’m not sure how to describe that) so that you can see how the metal flows.
Looking back to the sunny day when I took pieces down to the Fisher Gallery in Pittenweem.
Their summer show opens tomorrow, June 24th 2017.
These are the six pieces they will be showing, so if you are in Pittenweem for ENOS, or any other reason, maybe just pop in and see them.
A bit of tidying still to do for ENOS Open Studio tomorrow. I’ve opened up part of my sitting room as a gallery, with the technical stuff still in the workshop/studio. So there’s a bit more room to explore.
I’ve been trying out this bronze bowl around the house to see how it looks.
It’s a new design -slightly lighter and more open than the first bowl in this series.
It is made from recycled bronze with shell impressions, using a ceramic form that I created.
This bowl is on display at Inspired at Goldsmith’s Centre as part of London Festival of Craft. The exhibition closes today, so hurry on down. The piece is sterling silver (probably nearer Britannia as I always add a bit more fine silver to the mix) on a pattern welded steel base.
