Woodland Oddballs and Snow

Over Christmas I gave myself a holiday project to make animals, mainly as a change from scary deep sea creatures and dead animals in jars. I started off with cats and Foxes, and moved on to Racoons and Badgers. They're made with a pinch pot technique, which makes them pleasing to handle in a lumpy cute way.
The Racoons are especially odd. I've been firing them over the last couple of days, which keeps the studio lovely and warm, despite the snow outside. My brother's car has particularly lovely snow sculptures on the back, created by his roof rack, hand made by him at The Winchester Bindery...

Prints in Angel

 I've just taken part in an exhibition of prints right next to Angel Tube station in London. The location was really great, not least because walking around in the snow with framed prints is quite awkward! The venue was at Candid Arts, which has a great gallery space, spacious and airy. I'm hoping to exhibit the prints again soon.
