Apologies for my lateness with providing Open Studios details. I've usually done my post before now, but I've been having trouble getting into my blogger account. At last, I'm in!
It has been a pretty busy couple of months getting all my galleries restocked and refreshed for Christmas and I am now almost ready for Coburg House Open Studios, starting on Friday evening. Well, myself and Kaz Robertson still have a lot to do which includes much cleaning and making the place look festive! You are all welcome to come along to our Private View this Friday (details above). If you can't make it along for a glass of vino, then do try and make it over the weekend (Sat & Sun 11am - 6pm). It really is the perfect chance to get some unique Christmas presents and for yourself too ;-)
I will be having a big clear out with up to 70% discount and even more on some sample and 'end of line' pieces.
If you have followed my work since my degree show back in 2001, you will remember my signature spotty imprint on some of my pieces. This started off as a happy accident when I begun to fuse silver sheet pieces on a jeweller's honeycomb brick (used for soldering). Well, somewhere along the way, I lost the technique of spot catching. The heat of the torch, the length of time involved fusing and the brick itself are all important when creating this spotty pattern. After finding some old bricks (they used to have a smoother texture than they do now), I have managed to produce the spots again! I have missed them :-) Above are a couple pieces from my new 'Hydrangea' collection with my honey comb spots :-) These will be on display on the weekend amongst lots of other treasures.
If you can't make it to the Open Studios you are quite welcome to arrange an appointment with me on another day or you can visit my online shop at www.donnabarry.com.
Have a very happy Christmas if I don't see you.
