Saturday 7th July saw the opening of the ‘Games’ Exhibition at the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea. An exhibition inspired by both glass and, in the Olympic Year, the theme of Games.  This was hosted jointly by the Swansea School of Glass and the British Society of Master Glass Painters.

I was very happy to have my panel  selected alongside many other exciting panels – a great variety of styles and techniques are on show.  It’s on until Septmeber 23rd and well worth a look!  Click on the catalogue image to go to the facebook event page for more details, or follow this link to an article on BBC Wales with images of several of the other panels. For more images and information on my panel, ‘Games of Old’,  please click on the image below.

Little Bit of Linoprint

A few days away have given me a bit of head-space and time to do a bit more experimentation- this time to have a go with a technique I last grappled with about 10 years ago- lino-printing. I really like this technique and, having dipped my toe back into using it again I can’t imagine why I haven’t done it sooner. I like its immediacy, accessibility and, most of all, the high-contrast, linear nature of the work you can do with it.

So my plan was to follow some exercises to get a feeling for what the different lino-cutting tools could do and to play around with the types of papers and backgrounds- watecolour, tissue, newsprint etc. Very enjoyable and exciting to me as to where it will lead.
