Heygate Estate Cross Stitch - NowHere

Every day into work last year, I'd pass the Heygate Estate when my train went through Elephant and Castle. From the train platform you could see the bordered up, empty estate and I'd always glance across at 'Now' 'Here' sprayed across two top bits. I've never been in there but it's somewhere I've past on the bus, train and whilst walking for the past eight years. This estate is due to be torn down and replaced by a New Heygate and questions have been asked about what percentage of the new building will be social housing.

Fresh from the kiln

Some new sgraffito Earthenware pieces and a green stoneware 'Altrincham' lino piece.

Etsy Shop

I thought it was about time I opened an Etsy, something which I've been thinking of doing for a while during the transition from being unemployed from a regular income to being self-employed on an inconsistent income. I'll have my usual publications from zine and craft fairs but also will be selling a few bespoke ceramics and at some point my potato varieties tea towel when I finally get it printed.

6x4

Nicola Prosser put together '6x4' which was exhibited at the Cooper Gallery Project Space in Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in March. Over 600 postcards, from over 130 artists from 12 different countries were shown. The exhibition celebrated the postcard as an artistic medium in its own right and invited artists to submit of a 6x4 scale.

I sent over this embroidery of a scene of Bologna (which you might recognise from my ceramics I've posted on here).
