earlier black and white works in pen nd ink, very reminiscent of Beardsley



These puffins are beautifully executed


…..and then there was tea and lots of sharing of thoughts and ideas and then there were home made scones with home made blackcurrant jam and clotted cream……..


Hilary brought some wonderful drawings and this porcelain ceramic beauty with an inside base of crushed green glass – any ideas how she made it?





And we had another peep at that wonderful Hillfort pendant of green glass and copper…. IMG_0563
