‘Producing a fully functioning vessel from a ball of clay using only a wheel and my hands is something that fascinates me; manipulating the clay to create any form I can is a concept I love. My inspiration comes from everyday marks created during our daily routines, particularly in cooking and baking. I replicate these marks in clay and coloured slip, producing a permanent feature from a temporary, mundane activity’.

The words around the rim of the mixing bowls are hand written by Alice’s late grandma and give a narrative to her work. The recipes are transferred to the bowls using ceramic decals, which are fixed by a firing in the kiln. Ever since Alice had the idea to produce a range of bake ware, she wanted to add something special to it – her late grandma’s own handwriting seemed the perfect idea, adding a personal touch to an already unique, handmade collection.

I was lucky enough to find myself at Fosse House Gallery a few weeks ago. The knowledgeable and friendly owner Shenac, has a wonderful eye and her creative space was packed full of delightful art and gifts. I couldn’t resist leaving without several packets of her delightful signature ‘bee’ cards. I will definitely be back.

Just to say a very big thank you for the excellent framing of our picture, and for all the helpful suggestions and ideas, and good advice – we really love the result! It looks like a totally new picture, it seems to have brought it to life. We will be back.

You have done a great job of framing our Dior vintage poster – after many years we are now about to enjoy it! Excellent Jonny!! Lovely gallery, we wish you every success.

Just had 2 pictures framed of my artwork and am SO pleased with how professional they now look! Jonny was so helpful and took time helping me choose the right frame & knew exactly what I wanted. I’m a novice at this, but Jonny made me feel not only great for such a good job he made on framing my work, but gave my confidence a bit of a boost! Definitely bringing my artwork here again. Thanks Jonny! See you soon! Give Sox a cuddle from me.

Thanks for doing such a great job with the Hockney print. It’s now hanging in the hall for all to see and looks fabulous.
