At the beginning of last year I had a request for a painting of bluebells- possibly in and oval format.The bluebells weren't out at the time and I needed a few references and a really good look at the sort of areas where they grow. Our trip up to Ulverston and the Lake District for Printfest at the beginning of May gave me just the opportunity I needed.

The figures will be about 20 cm high after firing and have been modelled using paper clay.
The aim is to combine the modelled figures together with film of actual buildings and landscape to recreate a mediaeval pilgrimage to the Bishops Palace. It is hoped that the film will be projected in the undercroft of the Palace whilst the line of ghostly figures continue to process through the grounds during the 'Cauldrons and Furnaces' main event at in St.Davids next summer. Fishguard Arts Society artists are just one of the local groups and individual artists creating art works and performance pieces as part of the 'Cultural Olympiad' in Wales.
