Last week Ian and I went to the Biscuit Factory in Newcastle.
Great lunch (they even coped with my diet) and some interesting art to look at. We didn't like all of it, some was interesting but we wouldn't buy it and some we loved. Just how it should be.
If you find yourself in Newcastle anytime make a visit.
I find myself drawn to ceramics - always have been - and I find them much more inspirational than any other art form. Maybe this is why I love 3D textile structures. Maybe I should have taken a course in ceramics. One day I will when I have the time to travel and child free evenings I'll do just that. (Only 9 years to wait then).
We came home with this Raku fired vessel by Fiona Mazza.
Once home I realised the colours and textures echoed this recent work;
Something to think about - seems I'm changing direction.
Though I did also purchase this wonderful mug by Rupert Andrews, just to prove that purple and spirals are still in my sphere!
Playing around with the images to zoom in on detail;
Again echoing the colours I couldn't resist a third stool from Myakka.
We now have stool in, erm.... well Magenta, Purple and Turquoise. What a surprise.
Just proves you can't change an old dogs spots.
