The Chicken Run Studio first opened for Artweeks in May 2018 Oxfordshire Artweeks is an amazing event where an incredible 481 Artists across a range of Media are open in the Month of May across the County. I will be exhibiting in 2020 as part of a group exhibition in All Saints Church in the beautiful village of Blewbury Oxfordshire. Again for a successive week I will exhibiting in my home and Chicken Run Studio. It is a great opportunity to exhibit my work and talk through what inspires me from my experiences as a New Zealandwer and living in the village of Eynsham.
I have an online gallery and this can be accessed throughout the year. Find me also at and my facebook page.
Wytham Wood's Run Medallions
I was invited by the Wytham Woods Run Team to make the medallions for the 450 runners and 40 First place winners in each category in 2019 #www.wythamwoodsrun.org
Fortunately I was able to use the skills of Nick my son to 3D Print the stamps.
Acquiring a slab roller meant I could roll out the clay and stamp each individual medal. Flour after each press meant the clay didn't stick to the 'cookie cutters'.
After piercing a hole for the ties and stamping my ChickenRun stamp on the reverse each medal went in the kiln for a first firing.
Each medal was then glazed in Siemens and Healthineers colours (The local sponsors). Then back into the kiln for their final firing.
What a challenge , but they do look amazing and you can't get more individual and hand made than this.
