Angela will be taking in part in two Open Houses in May 2018:
May 5th, 6th and 7th; 12th and 13th; 19th and 20th; 26th, 27th and 28th. That is every weekend plus the two bank holidays.

May 5th and 6th; 12th and 13th; 19th and 20th; 26th and 27th. That is every weekend.
After a dozen years in high-rise New England House, Angela moved her studio to a wooden shed she has built in her sisters’ garden where her fruit and vegetable tiles grow alongside the apples and onions; the butterfly, flower and fish plaques busily evolve by the herbaceous borders; and her amoebae designs multiply within spitting distance of their mutating brethren in the compost heap.
She has also taken to the hills for some inspiration, making soap dishes which don’t take themselves seriously while also insisting everyday objects can be intriguing works of art and useful too.
Angela takes plaster casts from life to capture textures and form and uses found objects – bits of broken clocks or golf tees – to make marks and patterns. She loves drawing into and building up textures on clay and then covering them in highly transparent glazes which pick up every mark: not all intentional.
She has recently completed a commission for Kettle Crisps, adding parsnip, sweet potato and beetroot to her vegetable repertoire.
