A portrait of the Barnard Castle & Teesdale in contemporary cameo glass.A series of our pushed bowl forms, with colours moving through the seasons, exploring the landscape around Teesdale the Bowes Museum.This beautiful Landscape has been an inspiration to artists including the famous poem Rokeby by Walter Scott which celebrates Teesdale and many watercolorists have chosen to paint this landscape, including John Sell Cotman & J.M.W.Turner.Our exploration and Portrait of this landscape will use a perspective that has only recently become available. Using digital satellite technology,  enabling an over view of the landscape, revealing the geology and the marks carved into the land of Teesdale by natures hand and the active management of men and women over millennia.The title 'Portrait of Place', makes reference to the English Water Colour Tradition, a time before watercolorists were appreciated as artists, a time when their role was purely functional, recorders of the world around them.10th February 2018 - 13th MayThe Bowes Museum

8-The Museum of Curiosity

October 14, 2013

Love this…. evolutionary anthropologist Professor Volker Somme makes a salient point with ants heads and poo. Laugh and learn, my favorite combination in life. It’s only available for the next 7 days and in my opinion worth the half hour of listening.
