Ceramic experiments

I've been trying out a few things in my Ceramics class. Stamps, coloured clay inlay and impressing lino into clay for decorative effect. Here are a few tester pieces. I'm going to make a few pieces using lino cuts I made of Bologna and Wales to practice decoration with them.

The Great Outdoors - Embroideries

1. Heygate Ladies

2. Coldharbour Lane

3. Wendy

These are the three embroideries I created for 'The Great Outdoors' exhibition. I took walks and bus journeys around where I was living in Camberwell, photographing people and then making drawings of them. I wanted to capture quiet moments of ‘The Great Outdoors’ in an urban environment. There’s a lot going on, people going to East Street market, waiting for the 185 to Victoria, trying to avoid male harassment in the street or bumping into an old friend. I documented the hustle and bustle of Walworth Road, the area around Camberwell Green and Coldharbour Lane on my walk home to Southwell Road. I have created three embroideries, one from each of these journeys.

The Great Outdoors - Pictures

Here are a few pictures of my work installed at Nest Gallery's 'The Great Outdoors' exhibition at the Department of Coffee and Social Affairs on Leather Lane which closed this weekend.
