Fisher Gallery. New show June 2017


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.



New bowl design


cast bowl with seawater patina


cast bronze with sea water patina

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.


New bronze, with seashell.


I’m working on new designs for Pittenweem Arts Festival 2017. This bronze cast vessel takes its texture from the beach sand that it was cast in. The sun shone all day today so I went onto the rocks to take some pictures.


Hot bronze – Scottish Sculpture Workshop 2


I made some small jugs and some bowls to trial as new forms for casting.


I left 5 sand moulds for hot bronze, more experiments…


And this is a 3 bowl set, I can’t wait to get it cleaned and finished.


White Fox Gallery Opening tomorrow


These are my new plinths, made for me by Charlie Clark, ready for my solo exhibition at White Fox Gallery, Hirsel Estate.


The plinths are designed to ‘step’ across the centre of the gallery. I’ll take some pictures in the gallery, this is my front yard.

The exhibition opens tomorrow and runs til mid October. Drop by and see it.


June pieces



Finally the sun broke through yesterday and I could take some photos of what I’ve been up to this week. This is a bronze bowl with wee legs, it’d be a tripod but there are four of them. It has a patina from seaweed soaked in sea water. It’ll be on show in London in August at the Society of Designer Craftsmen.


This is the first of the large bronze dishes to be finished, it has amazing texture, I think I’ll leave it without patina. It’ll be on show at my solo exhibition at White Fox.


This smaller textured bronze will be on show at White Fox, also.


This piece, again for White Fox, has copper wire through the bronze casting and sea water patina.
