"Crackling with Colour" at Crieff

Here's a few photos of the show at the Strathearn Gallery in Crieff.

I'm sure you'll agree that the paintings and ceramics all go wonderfully  well together - all three artists were delighted when we saw the exhibition all hung!

Anne's 'Reliquary for Ellen' can be seen on the plinth below my painting "Rosebay Willowheb at Camusdarach".  Anne's sculpture is all about her family history, and has small photos of her relatives, reproductions of letters and found objects.

Here's Anne at the preview, with some more of her ceramics, showing the raku-fired 'crackle glaze' which gives the name to the show.  As part of the process of the firing, the glaze cracks, allowing smoke to get in to the cracks, causing the patterns on the surface of the pot.
This is my large Morecambe Bay piece "Sweep of the Bay", where the lovely greys and pinks are cleverly picked out by two pieces by Anne positioned below it.

Anne's crackle-glaze pots also work well with Emma's painting (seen on the right), and the lacework included in the painting is also echoed in Anne's little found-object sculpture 'Love Potion'.
Her Harvest Moon piece also echoes the subject matter and foreground plant forms in my painting, above left.
