Annie's Diary ...

June has arrived already! I am really enjoying the extra hours of daylight!

I have been very busy during the last couple of months and would like to share some pictures of some of the sculptures l have been working on.

The tree castle was a result of the Focus on Craft day at George's Barn Peene at the beginning of May. I was given the opportunity to demonstrate the hand-building techniques l use while producing a sculpture. After bisque firing the castle l used a combination of three different glazes to produce the final effect.

l am now working on a couple of extra tiers to increase the height of the piece. Eventually it will have a light inside. Please come and visit me on Sundays at George's Barn and see its progress.

l made the character jugs for two friends Janet and John. They are the owners of Crows Camp Studio in Bishopsbourne. It is well worth a visit during South East Open Studios during this month.

Other exhibitions where l am exhibiting are: The unusual Art Exhibition at The Community Network Centre in Cheriton from 20th to 25th June and The Summer Exhibition at Barfreston Court Barn from 3rd July to 5th July. All the profits go to the beautiful church in the village.

Contact me by email annie@anniebegley.co.uk or telephone 01303 840665.

Look forward to hearing from you.

About Annie

You can see a film of me demonstrating some of my methods by clicking the picture link below.

Annie was born in 1956 in the heart of the Kentish countryside. She grew up loving her natural surroundings and always felt a dedication to creating Painting and Sculpture. After completing her A Levels she moved to London and gained a B.A. Honours Degree studying Fine Art and Photography at Ravensbourne College of Art and Design.

She then worked as a Specialist Pottery Painter in London and subsequently moved to Gloucestershire where she worked as an industrial potter, learning the skills of using commercial pottery equipment.

After pursuing a Post Graduate Course at Sussex University she taught Ceramics, Fine Art and Textiles in several schools.

After teaching for 15 years Annie felt the need to give her own work more dedication as well as offering a retreat for a few of the rejected animals living in local sanctuaries.

Annie’s Studio now sits in the heart of the Kentish countryside - an absolute haven of inspiration for her work.

She works mainly by commission and during the past ten years has worked on a variety of projects including large murals, ceramic sculptures, portraits, personalised pottery and highly decorated loo seats.

Annie is dedicated to producing work of a professional standard but is always ready to instigate some humour into a piece of seemingly serious work.

I am holding one day workshops during the Summer on request, so if you are thinking of booking a creative day - painting or ceramic sculpture - please do it soon as l do get fairly booked up.

Workshops can be for up to six people. Workshop time is £35 per hour plus £5 per person for materials and firing.

Minimum of two hours.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call or email me-
