The lovely lady, Janice Hume, on the stall next to me had so many lovely original paintings, sketches and prints, it seemed rude not to treat myself. A beautiful, simple original watercolour heart in moss greens and blues, really peaceful, calming colours. Lovely. Her website is www.thiswouldlookniceonyourwall.com (genius name?!).
And I also fell in love with the work of ceramic artist, Kirsteen Holuji (www.kirsteenholuji.co.uk). She had huge sculptures of bulrushes to go in your garden and move gently with the breeze, voluptuous 'spotty bottom' vases, ceramic grasses, poppy seed heads and my favourite pollen sculpture. Unfortunately the pollen I fell in love with sold but I'm hoping Kirsteen will make me one........
In the mean time I have used her lovely work as inspiration - more details to follow shortly. I did spend lots of time over the weekend experimenting with making felt versions of the pollen and bulrushes. You can judge how succesful I was when I post the pics!!
