Doesn’t time fly, I must get back to more regular blogging. I shall make an effort to get up onto the computer and wait for it to slowly crank itself over and get going. Or is it just an excuse to make me buy an ipad, maybe one day.
Anyway, I have started selling through a specialist gallery, they saw my work at the Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design show and invited me to put some work into the gallery. Artifex, based in Birmingham, well Sutton Coldfield just outside of Brum, have a large collection of work including pieces from some of the well known British makers.
I have supplied a Ribbon Table in maple and they have also got one of my new Round Twist Tables, the first time it has actually been shown in public. Interesting for them as the twist table is a pure design piece but designed to be easily affordable (ie. cheap), a difficult one for a gallery to market but they want to have a go.
I will also be supplying a Zig Zag Sideboard to them which will be down for delivery in the near future. The gallery has a good range of other pieces from paintings to jewelry so it’s a good mix for visitors.

We shall see how it goes but my work does give them something slightly different and I was pleased to see that my pricing is more than acceptable, so fingers crossed on sales. Next venture is a show late in October in Bristol, so getting everything ready for this, and I have also been invited for an interview with one of the monthly furniture magazines for a piece.
All this makes for an exciting couple of months.
