This little piece is now winging its way round the world to New Zealand as a result of the little giveaway I did on my Facebook page last week. There are a few more Printed Fragments now in the shop, along with some of the smaller Pavement Pieces.
Yesterday I finished off my extended pavement piece and sent it off with other work to the Mall Galleries in London. It will be on show as part of Designer Crafts from Friday 10th to Sunday 19th january. Pavement is over 2 metres long and hangs down the wall and out onto the floor (or plinth as galleries don’t generally allow things draping on the floor).
As with my previous Pavement Pieces, this includes rust prints and collagraph prints, all using street-combed items and the layers are hand stitched. I’ve been plugging away at this one for two or three months so it is good to see it finally finished. I look forward to seeing it in the gallery when I’m there on 19th for my stint as a steward.
In addition to the gallery exhibition there will be a ‘Shop within the show’ where there will be items for sale that can be taken away rather than waiting for the end of the exhibition. I’ve sent a range of mounted small Pavement Pieces and some new Printed Fragments and these will be in the shop.
Last week I posted off two of my most recent Pavement Pieces to Unit Twelve for their Contemporary Craft Open Exhibition. This runs from 5th December to 1st March. This small but perfectly formed gallery is well worth a visit and there will be a magnificent range of contemporary craft on show.
Meanwhile I’m working on a much larger scale Pavement Piece for the SDC exhibition in London in January. Pictures of that to come another time.
