Some photos from Bridport's newly-opened gallery, Fox & Worthington, run by our friends and neighbours, Jane Fox and David Worthington

Within their converted former inn on South Street they are showing beautiful ceramics, prints, paintings, stone sculptures, and a few pieces of my glass.  I had to restrain myself from buying everything, but we couldn't resist Paul Blow's sullen tiger print.  I might desperately need to buy one of Julie Golsmith's amazing ceramic cat bowls as well.

I designed the shop window, and worked together with Jane on the silver leaf gilding. I really like the effect - reflective from the street, but silhouetted on the inside.  I'd love to do more of this sort of work.

Open on Wednesdays and Saturdays to coincide with South Street's vintage and antique market, 10 - 4pm and by appointment, telephone 07792 056019

    1. It was - I really enjoyed the whole process, and was quite surprised to see that the finished window looked quite a lot like my initial sketch. That never normally happens.

    1. Thanks Stuart - I've never done gilding before so it was good to try something new. I might be hooked now.
