This is my 4th Exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre with ESC Artists. Of course I am one of the founder members of this artist led group so I do exhibit at all the events we organise.
I am exhibiting a selection of air-chased, fold formed and embossed pieces of jewellery, some small sculptures crafted using various coppersmithing techniques. It would be lovely to see you at the exhibition. Do come and have a look!

Here are some pictures from past ESC Artists exhibitions. We set up a mixed exhibition with a range of work on display.
ESC Artists had a wonderful time at the Stamford Georgian Festival this year.
Our stall at the Stamford Georgian Festival Street market looked amazing and we got fantastic comments about the quality of work on display. Everything on the stall was crafted by the participating artists at ESC Autumn exhibition and market to be held at Stamford Arts Centre from 26 October – 5 November 2017.

2017 also marks the 50th anniversary of Stamford’s award as the UK’s first conservation town so it was a double celebration of our lovely Georgian town. I really do love where I live 🙂
This is the first time I have made a water feature and I am absolutely thrilled with it. It has given me the encouragement to try new things, try bigger pieces and just have even more fun with copper.
It was not the easiest project to take on, especially with my limited work area, and I didn’t actually do any drawings prior to starting. I just started and then drew some sketches to visualise how it would come together once I had made the leaves.
I am going to work on more water feature ideas and hopefully gather up the courage to create a big outdoor sculpture for the 2017 Exhibition. I will need to find a large sheet of copper for the base. Time to start looking for a place that cells old water tanks which I could recycle.
