At the beginning of 2011, the Shipley Gallery asked 11 craft experts from across the UK, including Rosemary Ransome Wallis, curator of the Goldsmiths’ Company, Rosy Greenless, Crafts Council Director, Bonnie Kemske, ‘Ceramic Review’ Editor and Wayne Hemingway, design guru to nominate a maker that they recognised as producing outstanding work. I was delighted that my work was put forward by Rosemary Ransome Wallis and subsequently I was asked by the Shipley Art Gallery to feature in their Christmas Present selling craft exhibition.

Throughout the exhibition, I will have a range of handmade pieces of silver for sale, including my recognisable square to circle beakers and new for this year my falling and tumbling leaf forms.
