The 2017 season is in full swing (see the Events and Exhibitions page for more details), and the May exhibition at Delamore in Devon is now just a glorious sunny memory. I'm busy trying to keep up with orders from my various galleries and gardens, when this mouse will let me have a turn on the anvil -
I have made these in the last few days:
The water lily pad pair, with an added flower, is a new arrangement; and the clam shell is the largest I have made at about 18 inches across. Getting the colouring right on that scale is quite demanding!
I have also revisited the Arum Lily Trio with Vine, for a commission, and that went well too. We are working up a summer storm!
Also this year for the first time I am exhibiting at the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens at Romsey in Hampshire for their Art in the Garden exhibition, from May 13th to October 15th. They have (amongst other great settings in a truly lovely garden) a magnificent very tall tree-stump with gnarly holes, full of insect wildlife, and now also under attack from three different sizes of my woodpecker.
The largest woodpecker is a giant, over two feet tall, and really HEAVY; it was a struggle to get him positioned. The stags seen below are also there, contesting a lovely clearing for a rutting site.
We also have a generous menagerie at Sussex Prairie Gardens, from June 1st through to October 16th. They are open on Wednesday through to Monday, in the afternoons, and they have very good tea rooms with home-made cakes. Their Plant and Art Fair this year will be on Sunday September 3rd, 11am - 5pm.
Did you see the little piggies?
They were to be seen at the RHS Rosemoor Winter Sculpture Exhibition, Great Torrington, in North Devon, from November 19th to February 19th 2017. It offers 65 acres of gardens, and the sculptures add interest when the summer flowers are quiet. There are pictures of my other pieces there on the PAST EXHIBITIONS page of this website.
The exhibition has now closed, but you can still see one of my woodpeckers there right in front of the big house. The RHS management decided to buy it for permanent exhibition, which is a compliment I very much appreciate.
Galleries and Gardens
I have re-activated my presence with a new exhibition at the Fire and Iron Gallery, Leatherhead. It really looks good - a large exhibition space in a magnificent barn conversion.
I am continuing to exhibit in a VERY good gallery in Deal, which if you are in the area is well worth a look. It is: Dunlin and Diver at 112 High Street, Deal, Kent, CT14 6EE. It has an inspiring range of contemporary arts and crafts, with a particular focus on Kentish designed and created pieces. See the Exhibitions page for more details including all the other places where Copper Creatures may be seen.
Note: pictures and prices shown on the Website
The pictures of sculptures shown in the Gallery are usually the first example of a new design, and the price shown is a guide to what that piece would cost. Each piece, however, is an individual work in its own right, and subsequent examples of any design may vary as ideas develop. Therefore the pictures and the prices shown should be taken, as they are labelled, as a guide. See 'Prices and Designs' page for a fuller explanation.
