Another beautiful day and I couldn`t resist a woodland walk with my friend, jeweller Sara Lloyd-Morris from Blackpool Mill to Slebech. Looking at light, colour, textures, reflections, making mental notes and discussing our work, inspiration and pros and cons of blogging. We have to make the most of this weather to get out there and absorb!
Had coffee in the spring sunshine at Slebech overlooking the river – who could ask for more?!
Looked in at the fabulous weavings by our friend Riitta on the dining room walls.
I had a wonderful 4 hour walk on the mountain with Alfie today, thinking about painting and Riitta`s work and the wonders of white…Now back to the studio to empty the kiln and bead up the decorations that were made in yesterdays workshop.
Just got back from a trip through the snow to St. Davids to see Adam Buick`s new work in a show that is open until 21st December. Fantastic pots from a recent firing – get down there to meet Adam, enjoy a glass of mulled wine and get your Xmas presents!! Makes me sick that everyone is heading for the new M&S in Haverfordwest and missing out on truly unique and beautiful work…mind you, there is no escalator, and we Pembrokeshire folk seem very excited about the first escalator to reach these parts!
Also in St. Davids is a fabulous exhibition of work by Finnish weaver and friend, Riitta Sinkkonen Davies in the Refectory of the Cathedral. Especially seasonal are the “white on white” pieces redolent of snow and ice.
