I decided during lockdown to start work on some new wall hangings which I have been designing for some time. A few years ago I created a small range of pieces inspired by woodland creatures and wanted to revisit these ideas.
So far I have created 8 new designs on the themes of rabbits, mice, squirrels and deer. I hope to add to these soon and have a fox, badger and hares so far at the design stage.
These wall hangings are part of a new range of works which incorporate less colour and some carved lines to give the impression of grass and trees. I have created them by first throwing a very thin disc onto a wooden board and once at leather hard I have used a handmade stencil, my slips and sgraffito to bring the animals to life. I’m excited to see where these new pieces take me and I have so many new ideas which is fantastic.
