We had been planning this for sometime so we hope you enjoy it!

My portrait painted by Trinidad can be seen behind the desk in front of the art critics (Marko Stepanov and John Farrell) who are discussing it in earnest!

In real earnest!

Aubergines: oil painting by Trinidad and ceramic with lustre by me

White on Blue (with a bit of red). Ceramic bottles and their portraits

"El Desastre" a composition inspired by Goya's "Desastres de la Guerra"

Some of the exhibits in the window.

Apples apples everywhere
and not a a drop of cider!

Hand Made is a collaboration between two artists, Trinidad Ball (painter) and Loli Cardeñoso (ceramic artist) who having found inspiration in each other's work, are now engaged in creating a collection that reflects this cross pollination. The result will be an exhibition in which 2D and 3D artwork bounce off each other.
