Made By Hand Favourite

I'm very pleased to have Sue Herdman choose my work as one of her five favourites at this year's Made By Hand this coming November.

A piece of luminous stained glass – and it need only be small in size – can be such a space enhancer. The work that comes from the studio of award-winning artist Christian Ryan is, he says, a combination of his love for ‘painting, graphics, craft and architecture.’ For me it is the mix of a traditional craft, executed with a deft contemporary approach, that makes Christian’s work so beguiling.

Made By Hand Film

Have a look at this great film by R&A Collaborations of Made By Hand 2016. I'm in there and I think I'm talking at one point although to me it sounds like my alter ego…

Made by Hand will showcases a highly selective group of makers & artists set in the sumptuous surrounding of Cardiff's City Hall. This premier event is part of a portfolio of events organised by Sarah James & Nina Fox. Sarah & Nina also organise the multi award winning, The Contemporary Craft Festival in Bovey Tracey and founded Made by Hand at Tredegar House near Newport. http://www.madebyhand-wales.co.uk

The Contemporary Craft Festival 2016

I can't believe it's already June and it's time for Contemporary Craft Festival in Devon later this week. It promises to be a great weekend. If you can make it I'll be in Marquee A Stand 29. It's on this Friday to Sunday, 10th - 12th June at Mill Marsh Park in Bovey Tracey.

I've also got two tickets available for the Private View on Thursday evening, 6-8pm. If you'd like them send me an email and I'll put them in the post for you. First come first served!

For all the information, activities and talks take a look here… http://www.craftsatboveytracey.co.uk/

Hope to see you there!
