ESC Artists Exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre

ESC Artists Exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre

Looking forward to ESC Artists 2017 Exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre which starts next week.

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.

ESC Artists 2017 Exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre


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.


Stamford Georgian Festival 2017

Stamford Georgian Festival 2017

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.

Lincolnshire Showcase at Whisby Nature Park

I was recently invited to be part of the Lincolnshire Showcase at Whisby Nature Park’s gift shop in Thorpe on the Hill, about 6 miles south-west of Lincoln city centre.

Sharing a Display cabinet with my friend Eve Marshall at the Lincolnshire Showcase. Eve is a fantastic felt artist and makes amazing felted accessories, sculptures and pictures.

Eve and I work together on several creative projects and designs which we exhibit at various locations including Art in the Heart Gallery at Westgate Arcade in Queensgate, Peterborough.

We are both co founders of ESC Artists with stained glass artist Cathi Prince and we organise gallery exhibitions and artist markets at Stamford Arts Centre.

Water Feature with Copper Leaves

Water Feature! First Attempt!

Water Feature with Copper leaves

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.

A video & some pictures.

Water Feature exhibited at Stamford Arts CentreUpdate: 10 November 2016 – My Water Feature was exhibited at the ESC Artists Autumn Exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre and received wonderful comments.

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.
