My work is generally in mixed media. I use unusual found objects that have a history . I utilise these in mosaics, collage, paintings and dioramas. Because of the way I work and materials used my pieces can have an aged look and signs of wear. This, I believe, adds to the work rather than detracting from it.
We work mainly in clay, but also in wood, stone, plaster and found objects to create domestic sized objects. Some are useful, some nostalgic, some comic, and some beautiful. Portraits of people and animals can be commissioned . We meet on a Thursday afternoon in Bridgnorth, new members are welcome.
