Open Studio Saturday 24th and Sunday 15th October

I am opening my studio to visitors on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th October 2020. My studio is just outside Reading at Mortimer Hill RG7 3PW. You will need to book a slot and can do so on the calendar below. I would love to see you!

Whiteknights Brooch - A Scene in Precious Metals Looking Across The University of Reading Lake

This Brooch was made to celebrate 20 years of The Whiteknights Studio trail in Reading. It is made from silver, gold (22ct yellow gold, 18ct rose and yellow gold) and the stone is a garnet.

The shape of the Whiteknights brooch is the outline of the University Campus (orientated with Whightknights Road at the base).  The dots indicate the perimeter of the campus and the little arrows show all the pedestrian footpaths entries onto the Campus. For the last thirty years I have lived within a stone's throw of the campus and its many footpaths have given access to the beautiful wildlife that can be found in the park. The scene of the brooch is inspired by a walk along the path that runs along the top of the lake adjacent to Whiteknights Road, it depicts the rushes and reeds that line the path with the lake and the rest of the campus beyond. I chose a garnet for the stone as it symbolises the university colours. 

This brooch features in a book 'The Art and History of Whiteknights' published by Two Rivers Press June 2020.
