This Saturday, 12th November, we are going to be at Lewes Town Hall - in Lewes (just near Brighton). Showing some lovely handmade porcelain gifts alongside local foods, vintage finds and contemporary crafts. If you haven't been to Lewes before its well worth a visit - very pretty English town. Hope to see you there! 10 - 5pm.
To celebrate 25 years of Cockpit Arts I am joining forces with Angie Boothroyd to create a one-off piece of porcelain lighting inspired by Angie's jewellery. This special piece of lighting will be exhibited in Angie's studio (E2G) during the Cockpit Arts 25th Anniversary Summer Open Studios:
10th - 12th June 2011
Friday 6 - 9pm,
Sat and Sun 11am - 6pm
Both Liz and Angie share a passion for the beauty of the natural world, as well as a love of rich surface texture and delicate colours, so it seemed only fitting that they should work together to create something truely unique.
The idea came out of a conversation in which the two designers discovered there were striking parallels in their work, despite their different disciplines. While Liz works in porcelain and Angie in gold, their approaches are remarkably similar.
Liz will also be unveiling some new discoveries in glaze...
Hope to see you there!
Drum roll please.........!
