 We have got to the stage in the craft shop refurbishment when we are ready to put paintings up.  So we are very lucky to have a selection of oil paintings by Cambridge artist Ashley Baldwin Smith.  With these paintings he has given us a reminder of the fens of East Anglia and captured the beautiful sunsets and never ending skys that inspired Constable and Turner.  We feel very lucky that he has given us this chance to show and sell his work.  He has also been inspired by the rolling hills of Devon and the beauty of Exmoor and for anyone wanting a local scene we have his ‘Storm over Exmoor’ oil painting which perfectly captures the drama and atmosphere of the breaking storm.   Go on to our links to click onto his site for more information and better reproductions of his work.

We also have some individual pottery by Hilary Butler who also makes the beautiful (Devon beach collected) sea glass sculptures and hangings as well as dicroic glass pendants.  So all in all feeling that the shop is beginning to look very good (though I must admit we haven’t got the floor tiles yet!)  we still have some amazing jewellery for sale from Glitz’n'Glamour, Vivabeader, KMD , brooches by Lucy’s Designs and Snapdragon and also some stained glass by Helen Fonnereau..(thats me).
