Small Peters in their nightshirts.... crowd of Christmas quirkiness








Here are some new figures, based on the larger Peter in His Nightshirt piece. They are all a little bit quirky, and slightly shocked looking... but I love the stripey nightshirt, definitely reminds me of something in flanellette from the 70's !

Buttons!






I have been making lots of buttons and expanding my ranges. Here's a few of them. Don't forget I run button making workshops at Millie Moon haberdashery boutique in Frome, and from my studio in Shepton. Contact me of you are interested, next one is at Millie Moon's this weekend, spaces still available - booking is necessary!
Button making parties are also available for larger numbers, a great idea for a grown up birthday party...
















To see more of my buttons please visit my website www.jolucksted.com or my etsy or folksy shops - links in the Events section of blog

Apologies!





I'm terrible at keeping up with my blog!
I've been very busy lately making new work for an exhibition coming up in August at the Ilminster Arts Centre.













Here's some pics of some of what can be seen there....Cupid, Artemis and Actaeon.


I have also produced sculptures of Leda and the Swan, Pan and The Minotaur.


Private view is 31st July between 3 and 5, come along, have some wine and meet the artists!
