Well, there I was thinking that the weekend away was my birthday present, as I floated around the exhibition on a light but thrilling breeze of sheer delight at actually being there, when Jay turned around and asked me which piece I liked...! Yes, I nearly fell over.
In some ways it wasn't hard to choose. This piece is a wonderful example of Julie Arkell's work that I first discovered a number of year's back. Endearing is the word that comes to mind generally around her work and no more so than her little rabbit people. On the whole, the entire show was so beautiful. Jessie Chorley's work was gorgeous too and is next on my list of heart's desires. Also showing were Cleo Mussi who made delightful ceramic mosaic figures, and Jeanette Orrell whose work is lovely delicate wire-work. See here for info on the show.
So I am one happy girl at the moment. And Jay has earned himself some serious credit!
