Thea Clark’s new series combines unexpected textures and unusual materials. In her words: “" Fluidity and Form” examines how we experience identity and the changing self. Objects are transformed into images on silk through the cyanotype process, rendered the classic blue of this technique. Chosen for their emotional resonance pearls, chains, nests, and circles signify protection, domesticity, and nurturance.

Strange day today: some things good, some bad, "good, in parts"!
Bad: my microwelder (hydro-flame) broke down; someone stole my tube-cutter; one of the students has hacked a coil of wire into multiple lengths as they were too lazy to look for the end.
Good: I finished a bangle -
Made from iron nail, silver,…

Just back from a long and relaxing weekend in Brighton with a brief sojourn to London, primarily to see the David Watkins exhibition at the V&A.
The Watkins exhibition was a touch disappointing as there wasn't very much in it, perhaps 20 - 30 pieces, all jewellery but the Silver Gallery and the jewellery collection at the V&A never fails to please.
Some photographs from this visit:…

I was recently interviewed for what I thought was going to be a short side-bar piece about myself and my role as Gallery Director at Hera Gallery
... However, when I picked up the latest issue of SO Rhode Island Magazine
, a local Arts & Entertainment Monthly, I was surprised to see a full page portrait of myself smiling (awkwardly) back at me.
Despite the intimidating full… Continue

There's a really interesting article in this issue of Art New England
about the Providence art scene written by Doug Norris. Doug is a wonderfully observant art writer who primarily reviews for the South County Independent, and freelances for national publications as well. Considering that I live… Continue

Finally finished my ring, "Trouble With Lichen", made from the corroded push-rods of a Ford Fairlane, found in a river at Campo Ligure, Italy. It is not a typical piece. I think that this is because I did almost no preparatory drawings for it and it came almost directly from the form of the material and the stones chosen for it.
