Glorious summer spontaneity - an overflow of floral & musical exuberance on 1st June 2019.
I have developed two designs of circle tile for sale at the Pitzhanger Manor shop. Pitzhanger Manor, at Ealing in London, has recently been beautifully and faithfully restored. It was the summer residence of the architect, Sir John Soane.
I was impressed by the detail which so enhanced the visitor’s understanding and appreciation of the newly refurbished Pitzhanger Manor and the life of Sir John Soane.
This 4 metre frieze will soon be on it’s way to Cornwall. Really looking forward to seeing it on the wall. Carefully curated for balance and interest.

This is an intriguing combination on red clay. Although I use mostly grogged white earthenware these days, I keep some red clay for this particular glaze.

Grey, ochre, slate and mandarin. Texture and brushwork. And shape, of course.
