and craftsmen from the newly formed Elemental Eye arts venture. They are combining their creative skills in a multi discipline, collaborative 2-year project to create the unique Four Seasons Cabinet. Above is Mark Harrison who was just beginning the second oil painted panel for the interior. If you look carefully you can just see part of the structure of the cabinet behind him. Unfortunately, I was unable to get a good shot of the whole of it there were just too many people milling around!
The cabinet connects each artist’s innovative interpretation of the natural landscape – a theme that permeates their everyday work.
Here is the multi-talented Cliff Wright, well known for his Harry Potter book illustrations, on this occasion creating a new piece of sculpture to sit atop the cabinet.
More working sketches and etching by another of the cabinet artists, Flora McLachlan who has an Etsy shop here.
Back in the printmakers marquee I found Louise Scott who produces beautiful etchings.
Couldn't resist these cards!
Iris Millward is a calligrapher who uses clay as a medium for carrying poetry. I just love these indigo panels!
Anna Knights' large contemporary botanical watercolours certainly have the wow factor!
And last, but not least Mirka Golden-Hann's colourful ceramic bowls.
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
