Fish Jugs
I have been making pots for over 40 years. Clay is a magical material. It amazes me that you can start with just a ball of soft, plastic clay and end up with a solid, durable item to use in your home everyday.
Local Artist
Harrison-James Alcock | Dorset
Harrison has already crafted a style that has become extremely hard to follow. His attention to detail and comfortability with technical drawing, combined with a philosophical outlook on life, makes Harrison’s artwork exceedingly decorative and hugely insightful to any open minded observer.
Local Artist
Mackerel Shoal Encaustic Wax on circular birch panel 50cm diameter
A local Portland artist working primarily with encaustic bees wax. I am drawn to the olfactory properties of this medium, the smell, the texture and the way it changes under heat.
Local Artist
Paul Bennell | Dorset
I am driven by a lifelong fascination with the noise, energy and drama of all modes of transportation. There is an artistic vein that runs through my family, and as a child I was always busy with Lego, making models or drawing.
Local Artist
Ros Heaven | Dorset
I always enjoyed drawing and painting as a child, but art took a back seat for many years as work, home and family took over my time. I always promised myself I would indulge my interest when I retired.

Machina by Geoffrey Robinson
My approach to painting has always been to look inside myself, rather than to interpret what goes in through my eyes. I make the paintings I want to see.

Asleep on the chair
Working from my studio in Thorncombe, I specialise in still life, pet portaits and dog paintings. My passion and inspiration for my dog paintings is drawn from my studio model, Parsnip, a spaniel who is my constant companion.
