Firstly apologies for not posting here for quite a while.
My work Profile was installed in the British Glass Biennale and here are a few photos of it in situ.
In 2018 I made two new windows for Skokholm Island Bird Observatory, once again in the prime position of one of the island’s toilets! These windows take the form of double glazed mirrored panels and are based on starlings roosting in trees, an otherwise rare sight on the island!
Studio Melyn, my collaborative architectural glass practice with Rachel Phillips is now busy on another commission for a 12th Century building, this time the Church of St Michael in Blewbury, Oxfordshire. Rachel will be making a window in celebration of bellringing, and together we are making a mirrored glass installation to amplify the window and the light in the space. The design of the installation is based on the bell ringers notation of the tune Cambridge Surprise.
I am currently curating Never Done, an exhibition showing my new work in glass alongside that of 15 women from Wales, Japan, USA, England and Shetland in celebration of International Women’s Week in my gallery here in Wales in March. The exhibition runs alongside Hidden Women • Merched Cudd, an event in my village to celebrate the lives of women in our community where Rachel and I will give a presentation about our work as Studio Melyn.
I will be opening the gallery here in Pembrokeshire this year showing some new paintings and glass work as part of North Pembrokeshire Open Studios August 24th – September 8th. I welcome visitors at any other time so please feel free to get in touch if you would like to visit.
To make room for all these new endeavours I am currently offering a 20% discount on all my work until March 2019.
Alongside developing my own practice I am now teaching Art and Craft at Coleg Plas Dwbl in Pembrokeshire. Plas Dwbl is part of Ruskin Mill Trust and provides Steiner based educational opportunities for young people with a range of complex learning needs including autism. Here are a few photographs of my students work.
