Sunshine on The Helford

Imogen Bone captures Cornwall in the Summertime

Imogen has made her mark as an artist who uses colour and texture to define her work, and has truly forged her own, instantly recognisable technique of lines and bold brush strokes to capture anything. From the stormy waves of the cornish coast, and wind beaten trees, to the soft petal on a flowerbud or the sunshine dappling on the Helford river. A full selection of her work can be found under our "Art & Artists" section.

"The world I see is a balance of marks and hues. Sometimes a blur of colour is just enough to capture something, other times I need to work away in layers of patterns so the details of the image emerge."

Foraged Beauty

New Ceramic work From Sally Tully

We are delighted to welcome ceramicist Sally Tully to our family of talented artists here at The Summerhouse.

Sallys unique creations are truly a thing of beauty, and the process behind each one is fascinating.

Sourcing plant material such as seaweed and other organic objects like feathers or horse hair from the beach and moorland near her home, she will surround the pots with these objects while they are still red hot from the kiln, and allow the materials to impart their mineral content on the surface in a natural and uncontrived way, creating unexpected patterns and colours in the final piece.

Using a variety of techniques, such a raku or 'slip resist' glazing, these pots are an experience beyond just being a visually attractive work of art. The different glazing techniques create a unique texture on each pot, and the way natural materials, foraged from the stunning Cornish landscape have been utilised to become a part of each piece makes her work something truly special.

A full selection of Sally pots can be seen on display at The Summerhouse.
