Clare Halifax | New printsA collection inspired by botanical gardens
Stylish fresh new work by Clare Halifax in pale pinks and muted greens - see a collection of prints inspired botanical gardens; the magnificent structures of greenhouses and their tropical plants.
Clare Halifax's printmaking combines extraordinary detail with areas of flat, decorative patterns. Inspired by visits to famous botanical gardens in the UK and other places in Europe, she has created a stylish new series of prints, exploring views of famous tropical greenhouses, such as Victoriahuset in Stockholm, or Kew Gardens in London, as well as studies of individual plants.
Available framed and unframed.
Tolly and MeVirginia Dowe Edwards
'Tolly and Me' is a new collection of ceramic sculptures inspired by Virginia’s own childhood companion Tolly, a Labrador cross Irish setter.
"He was brought home as a puppy when I was just two years old and he shared our lives for fifteen wonderful years. He kept my secrets, supplied cuddles and provided unconditional love whenever it was required, and most of all I felt safe with him."
Using roughly textured clay, Virginia creates dogs that are alive with detail and movement. They are fired in a Raku kiln; a small, lidded brick pit which is packed with combustibles such as straw or newspaper and left to burn down overnight. The smoke gives the sculptures their typical patchy look.
