If you missed the “What Lies Beneath” exhibition at Anteros in Norwich, you have another opportunity to see some of the beautiful work created by myself and my friend and fellow artist, Rainie Kay. We are exhibiting at the Art House Cafe in Cromer until Saturday, 11th May.
The Cafe was opened almost 4 years ago by Liz James, herself an artist working in watercolours and mixed media, whose ambition was to support and exhibit local artists and the diversity of their work.
Underwater Vessels features a range of bowls and dishes using different fused glass techniques by myself. These are all inspired by the North Norfolk reef; Europe’s most extensive chalk reef, stretching more than 30 km along the coast and reaching out into the North Sea. I was enchanted by this extraordinary world and the diversity of marine life that populates it. The colours and forms of the creatures and plants living on the reef are magical and a real challenge to me to represent them in glass to their full advantage.
Ultramarine: an artistic journey under the waves features work by Rainie and includes some photographic based pieces, along with new prints and several ocean themed paintings. As Rainie explains, “For the first time, I’ve also made some lovely ocean inspired jewellery featuring recycled vintage, antique and semi-precious beads and real drilled sea-glass. There are plenty of new greetings cards to choose from, as well as some attractive dolphin tote bags, so you can say goodbye to plastic in style.”
Hope you can visit our exhibition!
