Those who visited us during Oxfordshire Artweeks in May will know what a wonderful space we have in Tam's house to exhibit our work. This year we are delighted to be holding a Artweeks Christmas Exhibition weekend with our friend Vital Peeters who lives just around the corner.
This is a great opportunity to come and choose some really special and unique Christmas gifts from the people who make them. We have lovely stoneware pottery from Tam, beautiful work in glass and stone by Vital and of course lots of my new corsages and jewellery to tempt you.

Tam makes wheel thrown stoneware pottery in her home studio. Having grown up next to the Pacific Ocean in California, she is inspired by landscapes and has developed adistinctive and minimalistic style. “I take more pleasure from the form than the
decoration and I love the idea that people are using what I have made,” she explained.
Her work has been sold in various galleries and she exhibits regularly with the Oxfordshire Craft Guild. Her next exhibition with them is in Chipping Norton Town Hall from December 5th-7th.
Vital graduated from Oxford Brookes University in Fine Art and History of Art in 1987.
He started his Glass Studio in Oxford in 1990.
He uses a wide variety of glass techniques which include fusing, sandblasting, painting and etching for the numerous architectural work as well as casting and slumping.
In 2000, he started carving stone as well. Most recently, he has explored clay, sculptureand drawing.
His glass studio and sculpture garden are open to the public every year for the Oxford
Artweeks Festival in May and November.
