I've been involved in some great exhibitons over the spring and summer of 2019. The Costwold Sculptors Association exhibition at Abbey Gardens in Malmesbury in April was fabulous and I hope to be part of that again in 2020. In May and June I had some pieces in Showborough at the Affordable Garden Art exhibition. Andrew Roache keeps this annual event thriving at his house north of Tewkesbury. Cheltenham Open Studios was a great event here in June, and I made lots of new friends and contacts in the area. It was particularly uplifting to share the exhibition space here with four lovely people - Plum Neasmith. Janet James, Penny Campbell and Myra Murby. Also in June I was involved in an exhibition at Greys Court just outside Henley. This was my first Oxford Sculptors Group exhibition since rejoining a few months ago. A lovely spot in beautiful gardens and an indoor venue that was once a stable where Oliver Cromwell's horses were kept. 

Over the summer I've been completing two stone commissions, both of them memorials. I only work on memorials if I have a meaningful link with the people involved.The process of making is important, from discussion and design through to execution. I have to do the best work I can. for this kind of endeavour is quite different from my sculptural activity. I'll post them when they're completely finished and in place.

I'm working on two new clay pieces which I hope to post here soon. In the meantime, there is one more summer exhibition. Don't miss it!
