I've never been to Mexico, or in fact the Americas - it's all been in the other direction from the UK with New Zealand being the back stop. So the Mexican Gallery at the British Museum delivers something remarkable. These artefacts, so far out of the context of time and place, stil...Read Full Post »

At Snape Maltings today for a meeting and so was the spring.

I liked the grey one best.

I know we have the sea and shouldn't be greedy - but I miss this sort of thing. A couple of inspiring days in The Cotswolds.

Most of my recent work has been eaten. My significant moment was getting a complete cake out of a new tin - after only managing (highly-edible) rubble. This weekend is about a household return to school, universities and work. Me to my torch.

My 'Urban Fairy Ring' is looking seasonal.

I enjoyed meeting the folks that braved the weather to get to my studio - it WAS good to be at the torch and next to a kiln. Then of course there was this from my window, a ten minute convoy of tractors driven by Santas...

The windmill round the corner from my studio on a clear spring evening.

A recipe for Singapore spice mix that looks as good as it tastes and a proper workhorse of a pestle and mortar from Thailand.

Just back from Yorkshire - our very happy compromise for not driving all the way to the Scotland I grew up in. Later this year for that!

It's bleak in Suffolk so I'm looking at the beautiful Spirit House from the British Embassy in Thailand and remembering warmth, abundance and light instead.

I was able to revisit Thailand for the latter part of November to stay with a friend I spent five years at Art College with - a street away from where we used to live. We lived in Bangkok for seven years from 1999 and its fair to say you leave a piece of yourself behind. An amazing way to find it.

I haven't been able to upload to my blog over the past couple of weeks but I have been recording a very lovely autumn.

My parents had enough children to mean that I was once told that I was getting a sibling instead of a bike, but also a full shelf of 'Old Masters' art books. Carlo Crivelli was one of my favourites. These were the 'Disney Princesses' I grew up with. I was pleased to find a room of his work at the National, the Annunciation with all its wo...Read Full Post »

Just saw Anthony Sher as an amazing Lear - some lovely RSC costumes for light relief.
