Come down to the Warehouse Cafe in Allison St. Digbeth for lovely food, my latest collection of ceramics and live music from my friends, The Trees ( Carl and Geoff) debuting their new selection of tracks.

Art, food and music at the Warehouse Cafe

Blue Flyer 1

As one show ends, another begins. On the Monday evening of 13th October I am launching an exhibition of my new work at the Warehouse Cafe in Digbeth. It promises to be a great evening with delicious food and great music. The food will be a range of the excellent vegetarian and vegan dishes created by the Cafe’s culinary experts and the music will be provided by the Trees, a sublime combination of folk and country with a tinge of bluegrass. It’s £5 on the door and bring your own tipple so if you want to do something a little more exciting than your average Monday night, get down to Digbeth. If possible let me know in advance if you are definitely coming as this will help the Warehouse Cafe with preparing the right amount of food.

Latest Exhibition starts Monday at the RBSA

Birmingham - Aerial View

Tomorrow I will be at the RBSA Craft Gallery setting up an exhibition of my latest work. With over sixty ceramic panels to prepare, it will be a late night getting everything finished and organised. As well as showing my work based on aerial views of Birmingham (featured above), I will also be exhibiting a range of new pieces called “Fragments”. The show runs from Monday 1st September to Saturday 11th October at the RBSA, 4 Brook Street, St Paul’s, Birmingham B3 1SA. If you can make it to the show over the next six weeks, it would be great to hear your comments about my new work.
