Although exhibitions continue across Oxford this weekend, Jane and I decided to travel to South Oxfordshire, where the second of the three weeks is kicking off.
We drove towards Wantage, although didn’t get quite that far, and visited a range of exhibitions, particularly from ceramicists. We saw a number of people who were new to us but ended up getting a couple of bowls for our collection from Mags Cuttle (#215) in Kennington, who we first visited last year. Not only were her prices a bit below the average but her work was nearest our platonic ideal (at least to fit with our idea of a decent sized bowl to harmonise with our existing collection).
If I had to pick a highlight from multiple exhibitions we enjoyed though, I’d probably go for Carolyn Hawkes (#213) at Drayton. Lots of mathematics, cartography and labyrinths worked out in various media, mainly based around painted acrylics.
