Time is going so fast ! Its now less than a week away from our re-launch as the Art Clay Scotland Jewellery Studio. Our shop and studio will be closed for a week as we frantically paint the walls, sand the floors and assemble the cabinets. The outside has already had its make over – we went from this
To this …..
Our opening exhibition will feature the jewellery of 9 metal clay artists. It’s starting to arrive and is all stunning !! In the final count down I’ll be finally announcing our exhibitors, and featuring each one individually over on face book, and here there and everywhere We are also thrilled to have Scottish Artist Ewan Stirrat exhibit his stunning paintings with us, I can’t wait to see them!

One of the elements of our big change has been to transform our studio into a more user friendly space for jewellers. We have built 5 benches which will seat students during classes, and be available for hire during the day and on request. Its been very very exciting to see the area go from an idea to a reality! I’ve been doing most of my designing and making from home, and am going to work from our studio. I am so looking forward moving in, and playing with all our new tools like the rolling mill! The hardest thing now is for me to choose my bench !
From this …..
To this !
Now that the studio is ready we can really turn our attention to the front. Because its our 5th birthday in February our re-launch on the 25th will have a party atmosphere. The shop is starting to be cleared of all our beads ready for the Gallery! I am so incredibly excited to open a gallery which showcases the jewellery of Metal Clay Artists. As far as I know there is no other Gallery in the world which showcases Metal clay work in this way – and really – its about time !! The work that is being produced just gets better year after year. I’ve been very lucky – all the artists I’ve approached to exhibit have responded with excitement almost mirroring my own. I am really looking forward to announcing and featuring all of them on our new blog and Face Book Page – they deserve to be shouted about!
There is still so much to do… and the clock is ticking…… but it really is all coming together
