Last Winter Ceramics will be participating in the Comrie Open Studios event in The Goldfinch Gallery…VENUE 10.
Nicola says about her work…On simple thrown forms, patterns inspired by Scottish and Alpine landscapes are added to each piece before glazing, some hand drawn using a slip trailer, or using bespoke 3d printed stamps to create repeating patterns.
The design and making process combines both traditional pottery skills and digital skills, using 3d modelling and 3d printing to create dies and stamps to make and decorate pieces.

Scents of the Wild has come to my rescue many a time - be it to make my rather humble cottage smell fabulous or to help relax this aged mother of an artist after a LONG day. The scent of these candles are remarkable - strong but not overwhelming. I love them and many a time my house has been remarked on for its lovely smell! Thanks Rachel…Rachel will be taking part along with others at the Tea Factory at Comrie Croft! X

Katy doing a fantastic job Recycle Me Mosaics thank you for this lovely post!

Starting a series of composite images in anticipation of Comrie Open Studios which runs from 8th September - 11th, so 4 days to visit 19 studios with 26 artists..

And as I am all about flowers in my mosaic work, I thought I would share a floral array today. Christine Ironside creates beautiful images in watercolour and acrylics. My friend, Jo Cound Photographic Artist photographs flowers in all their glory, and Rachel Scents of the Wild will fill your room with floral fragrance. (Rachel also runs Wild Soul Films and made the short film about me that is on my website)

A wee visitor waiting on the step of the studio. He looked so sad when I told him he is too early for Comrie Open Studios which doesn’t start until the 8th September but he did promise to come back

Liz Kemp
Liz Kemp will be exhibiting with the Comrie Open Studios event running over and around the weekend of the 8th-11th of September.

My work is a combination of collage, painting and the re-use of found objects and materials. Most of the small canvases were painted in 2020 as part of an exhibition entitled "At the Beginning of a New World” for the Goldfinch Gallery and were a response to the Covid pandemic. The smaller wooden panels are based on poems and, like the canvases, use found images in a collage format with acrylic and ink overpainting and applied gold and silver leaf. The various furniture items use découpage, emulsion and acrylic paints and are both useful and decorative. I also make small artists’ books which can be made on commission.
Very excited to have Liz exhibiting and look forward to seeing her work!

Christine Ironside…
All my work is inspired by my garden. Watercolours on Japanese paper and acrylics on canvas. There will be an installation and also plants for sale. Colour in nature and the constant process of change is my inspiration.

Introducing Jonathan Sainsbury to our Open Comrie Open Studios page and event (8-11th September). His work is delicate, beautiful, timeless…to use three words, that to be honest, don’t do his work justice.

In Jonathan’s own words:

Comrie open studios is an opportunity for me to show a broad spectrum of my work from large paintings to small pictures and sketches all inspired by nature and the many ways it can be expressed from interpretations of poems like in ‘Cock Pheasant’ by Laurie Lee or environmental issues such as the Sea Empress oil disaster ‘Reciprocal Arrangement’ but ultimately many pictures that just show the beauty and joy we get from our neighbouring wildlife .’Blackbirds and Bramble all the worlds a stage’.

Please see our website https://comrieopenstudios.com/interactive-map/ for more details and also please can you spread the word as far as humanly possible! Thank you 🥰

TheTreecycler
Wonderful artist Beth makes beautiful art: sculptures, ceramics and practical items out of recycled materials such as copper and wood (and recycled bicycle wheels!) Her ceramics are gorgeous; full of colour and depth. The copper wire She uses throughout her work contrasts beautifully with the colours she introduces through her ceramics and chosen upcycled items such as found larch wood. Her clocks are fabulous - made from old discarded bicycle rims and the aforementioned larch. The materials work beautifully together as they are quite stark in contrast. More about Beth in future posts. But please spread the love and repost.
Comrie Open Studios runs from the 8-11th September and Beth will be flinging here studio doors open to us!

Well hello everyone! Here is the exciting first post from our new page. Such fun as Miranda’s chum would shout!
Over 25 artists are going to be opening primed ready in their studios from the 8th - 11th September! Please come and see artists at work and “meet the makers”! We would LOVE to meet new faces and old friends too…we artists love to have the chance to actually meet the kind folk that buy a card, a print, a mug…
Please also note that although it states Comrie Open Studios - we are thrilled to have some fantastic artists join us from slightly further afield too…
It is my job (hello, hello, Charlotte here!) to be the “social media expert” - oh how I laughed 🤣😂. So I am thrilled and honoured to be introducing the artists individually and hopefully spreading the news as far as we can get it!
So first question…who have we got following us already? And can you invite pals to join us on this fun journey?
Ta muchly pals! Xx
