Buoy oh Buoy

TIME & TIDE was the title of my very talented friend Gemma Thorpe's one woman exhibition at Llanbedrog, Wales.
Set in a beautiful room which really lent itself to her coastal themed work with its white stone walls, high ceiling, arched windows and wooden floors we could'nt drag ourselves away and went back twice.
 Gemma is very diverse in her art, she has created a lovely ceramic range of pots. I've got the teapot and a canister and intend building my collection up with more pieces
The lovely BUOY door stops are such fun and I was given one as a present.
There are cushions and Gemma's own designed mugs with knitted warmers
You wouldnt want to use these tea towels they are so nice just to look at.
And I just love this contemporary knitted jewellery.
I bought the green necklace and I already have a taupe coloured one which I wear a lot.
This collage is part of a tryptych on canvas
The light in the room was fantastic

Gemma will be launching her own website before the end of the year.  I will keep you informed.
If anyone is interested in purchasing her work I am going to be putting some pieces in my own webshop for her.  All the money will go to Gemma, I wont be taking any commission.  She is such a talented lovely girl I would like to see her do well.

Hope you've enjoyed seeing a little snippet of what she does.

  1. Gemma's work is beautiful and so diverse. I can see the appeal for you because you have similar pieces in your own studio (I can say that now!) and her pottery is wonderful too. Crafty hugs, Anne x

  2. What a beautiful place for an exhibition. Gemma's work looks amazing and I love the cosy knitted mugs! x

  3. How lucky you are to have viewed Gemma's work, not once but twice. It is all so beautiful. I particularly like the triptych, but everything is so amazing. I look forward to seeing what pieces you get in your webshop :0) xx
