I am happy to make to commission.
From animal sculpture portraits to simpler plaques and tree decorations I have made a number of commissions over the last few years. Some of my favourites have included a beautiful boxer dog named Daisy, a pair of gorgeous greyhounds, a highland cow, a plaque for a stable and a set of three memorial Christmas tree decorations.
A commission makes a special gift for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, Christmas or any other occasion can be made. Just pop in for a chat about what you would like.
As each item is hand built in clay please allow enough time for the making, firing and glazing processes (typically allow 1 month minimum). Please also have a look at my gallery to get a feel for my style before deciding if you would like something made in ceramic.
Public Art commissions
I also have experience with public art commissions within schools. I have completed a ceramic and textile commission for the Vine Inter-Church Primary School in Cambourne to celebrate their 10th birthday. It was a fabulous piece made with help from pupils and staff inspired by the school name, their values and the sayings that are around the school. Made of hearts and leaves the vine also has buttons on the lower leaves for pupils to hang wishes and prayers on.
I am currently working with Over Primary School on a tile commission to welcome guests to their school. The design is inspired by the school logo and, as this is to be sited outdoors, this one will be all ceramic. Each child in the school has made at least one tile to be included in the final piece. I’m now busily firing and glazing all those pieces before making the remaining pieces and reassembling the jigsaw to make sure it all still fits!
If you have a project or idea you would like to discuss please get in touch.
I am a great believer that everyone should have the chance to experience and enjoy art and craft. I have experience in planning, funding and leading community art workshops taking ceramics to a wide range of groups who wouldn’t normally have had the chance to experience it. Art and Craft are a fabulous way to bring people together and celebrate community!
I am experienced in organising a wide range of events including lantern parades, music recitals, art auction, open studios, parties, project launches and exhibitions to name a few. I enjoy organising and coordinating all the various elements and pulling it all together for everyone to have a fabulous time!
