Swapsies

In August I exhibited at Art in The Pen where my purse was dismayed to find so many fabulous items for sale. However, I eventually realised one could be within reach if something could be swapped. I was coveting a ceramic lamp and to my great delight the seller was more than happy to do a swap.

This colourful hanging was my swap item and the fabulous ceramic lamp below is what I received in return.

The clay is impressed with ammonites and sea urchins and wrapped around a pipe to form the shape. If it’s brought off the pipe too early it collapses and if left too long shrinks and sticks to the pipe. When the lamp is lit it looks absolutely stunning and so different.

The clever creator of these lamps is Ann Rogers. Ann doesn’t have a website yet but can be contacted by email at annrogersceramics@yahoo.co.uk
