The South Northamptonshire Art Trail has come to an end for another year. This was my third year being involved with the trail and I am pleased to report it was a huge success.
As previous years, I had a large display of my work on show at The Hayrack Gallery in Upper Stowe at The Old Dairy Farm Craft Centre for the duration of the Art Trail. During the last weekend of the trail, I was in the gallery demonstrating how I make some of my slab-built pieces. It was great to see so many faces (old and new), and I enjoyed chatting to people about the processes of my work. It was nice to directly show people how certain processes are achieved, which is something I don’t have the opportunity to do very often.
The Hayrack Gallery became my first ever stockist in 2008 after I graduated from University. As the gallery is very local to me, I often pop in to deliver new stock and it’s great to see how the work of other artists in the gallery has evolved over this time.
An additional bonus is the Old Barn Restaurant just a few metres away from the gallery. I enjoyed two delicious lunches (including pudding!) in the tea room during the Ar Trail.
Overall, my weekend spent at The Hayrack Gallery proved to be very productive. I managed to get all of the pieces below made, in between lots of chatting!
I’m looking forward to getting in touch with some new contacts made, and will be decorating this lot before they are fired in the next week or so.
If you missed out on visiting the Art Trail, there is still a selection of my work on show at The Hayrack Gallery (NN7 4SH). But be quick! As each piece is a unique one-off, once it’s gone, it’s gone! No two pieces are ever the same.
