This morning, I had a little trip into Nottingham. I went to the Focus Gallery at the top of Derby Road, Canning Circus. I took along a *few* pieces to see which the lovely Antonia would like to display, and she chose them all!
I am very pleased, and very excited, to now be stocked by this gorgeous gallery. It’s been closed for a few weeks for much needed and very long overdue (and long promised) maintenance. They re-open this Wednesday. The overhaul looks great, Antonia and her staff, friends and family have done a brilliant job. Along with long standing artists and makers, they’ve brought in a great range of new creatives as well.
If you don’t know about the Focus Gallery, you’re missing a gem. Established in 1971, it’s Nottingham’s longest running independent gallery. You will find a wide range of cards, gifts, jewellery, art and much more – oh, and you can usually park right outside (metered parking on the street).
As a member of the Contemporary Glass Society, I get to apply for varying opportunities and exhibitions – such as the Medallions earlier this year (click on the link to take a reminder look)
My Maple Syrup platter was one of only 46 selected out of a huge number of entries for the current online exhibtion; click here to see more of “Bowled Over”

Just spent a lovely couple of hours at the open evening for the new Seed Gallery and Studio in Crich.
It’s a gorgeous gallery, small but perfectly formed. And they just happen to be stocking some of my work, along side some fabulous work by other artists and makers.
The gallery is beautifully laid out, in a beautiful building, a former reading rooms, and sits opposite “The Loaf”, a lovely delicatessen where you can enjoy a nice cuppa and a slice of scrummy cake… what more reason do you need to go?
Sarah and Rachel, I wish you both the very best in your new venture, well done!!!
