twits .....

Many of you know from a post last year, that I collect white porcelain - translucent vessels in particular.  Last week three fellow artist's and I had a drive to Redcliffe to visit Jo St. Baker in her Studio with a mind to viewing it as a possible exhibition space for a group or individually.

While there I could not resist buying two new little additions for my porcelain collection - 'Twits', by artist Josephine Regan.  You will see them on the bottom shelf and then watch me play as I try to find a resting space for them among their peers.  The truth is, I think 'the twits' will move around the porcelain display often as either I, or visitors, rearrange.







 





I love how this twit seems to be about to kiss you ....



This is Jo's Gallery and Studio space.  She has a great eye and a contemporary approach which would suit me and my work very well ...... no time to think about it terribly much just yet but I am really interested in seeing if she will stock some of my work there and then maybe organise an exhibition for late next year or the year afterwards - if of course my work is deemed suitable.  It is a 'pop up' gallery at present, but I am sure Jo will move from this to another should this building sell.

If you are in the area, this is a fine place to visit.  You can see from this photo that an exhibition was in the process of coming down but even if you are there in-between exhibitions, there are lovely things to look at and buy.

    1. Thanks Kim - familiar and of course your piece too which I still love. I hope you have had a good Open Day. Gorgeous weather for us all but not really good for Studio wandering. I am stuck indoors unwell I am afraid otherwise I may have venture forth!
