It has been a mad year with moving studios and working with some great customers and makers This exhibition has cemented for me many of the things I have learned over the last few years. I am a potter through and through, I like making functional ceramics; work with a purpose. Open till the end of the month 😊

Day 2 of the #KnowingtheDance #residentialresidency at @danceireland_di superb #DanceHouse
Feeling v. fortunate to have this time and space. Editing the #dancepoems is like poetry editing to the power of three or editing with bits of your creative self operating under their own volition. Above #white #cord for #Intertwine which was previously normal tan #twine (Is it normal that twine is one of my favourite things?). The substitution is for an excellent reason but the words are now feeling murky and behind-the-times - so do I update or hold to the original vein of inspiration. If yesterday's progress is to go by, I predict an excellently creative solution will be found.

Caught a glimpse of the stunning #ceramic work at the #DownArtsCentre "Seven Shades" exhibition where 7 of #NorthernIreland 's most talented designer-makers each bring their unique signature to the world of #porcelain and #finebonechina

View of #Downpatrick from last month. At the back is the #DownArtsCentre - who are hosting an #exhibition of my #photography this September and October! Super excited. Follow my Avalard Photography page on Facebook for more details.
Still struck by how much I find myself returning to this town - I lived nearby for a couple of of years.

"SuddenCompassion" - one of #artist #CiaranMagill 'TragicMagic' solo exhibition of his haunting-beautiful #landscapes . The large canvasses are breathtaking but I loved this - its colour and the idea if it. Privilege to meet the artist too.

Tragic Magic is on at #DownArtsCentre until 27 May. Well worth calling in to see. It's curated by #BrendanJamison who has written an accompanying book about the art and life of the artist.

This rather primitive looking #stone #bollard sits outside the former #townhall (now #DownArtsCentre) in #Downpatrick is actually a #milestone thought to be of late #18thcentury date (c.1780-1800).
