Millstone Grit

A new exhibition at the House of Smalls prompted me to create a new piece of work called Millstone Grit for the Dollhouse gallery.

The exhibition takes place at The House of Smalls, Cambrook Court, High Street, Chipping Campden, Glos GL55 6AT from 26th August – 16th September 2023.

With an exhibition titled ‘In Memory Of’ I designed an artwork in memory of my Dad.

I’m enjoying making small artworks that fit in perfectly with the scale of the Dollhouse exhibition.
