Thank you to Elaine Bolt for her encouragement – you will see a little of the ceramics made with her at West Dean College recently. These pieces will be on display at Venue 79 of the Chichester Art Trail over the first two weekends of May together with my mixed media and collage work and the beautiful monochrome photographs of my husband Alan Frost. It will be interesting to see how his work and mine work together – there is definite similarity in terms of colour choice but whilst his is about technical perfection my work is much more rustic!
I am looking forward to seeing the last pieces framed and also to the arrival of a wooden plinth for my trio of sculptures … watch this space!
I hope that these items will not only appeal to some people as pieces of art but also raise awareness of the amount of debris that is thrown into the sea. All of the found elements here came from the Chichester Harbour Area – I walk here most days with our dog and carry one bag for collecting discarded plastic and the like and the other for the items that I feel I can use – thank you to Chichester Harbour Conservancy for the work that they are doing in this beautiful area of West Sussex – perhaps more of us can do our bit by collecting rubbish when we are out and about. Here are the lids I picked up this morning during an hour at Church Norton. Maybe you can beat the number that I found?
