My chance to wonder about hand made things and tell the world about those I make, love and cherish!

Sue Brown

Sue Brown is lovely and very talented.
I wasn't sure how to start this post so I thought I would say exactly what I wanted.
Sue Brown is an artist/printmaker, whom I have met through the postman's knock challenge. She also had her studio open during Cheltenham Open Studios and I had the chance to get over and see her lovely home, her wonderful shed and her fascinating work.
She is currently doing a MA in a variety of print techniques whose name escapes me now.
Her work often uses bird imagery but she is one of those people who is able to turn her hand to many things.
Part of her work at the moment uses enamelling.
 She has been happily enamelling cutlery, as you do, and producing wonderful little items. I couldn't resist this spoon.
It hits on so many levels, words, crafting an items, spoons.
What is not to love?

I love Sue's work too, especially her crow and moth imagery. I can't remember how I stumbled upon her blog, but it's always a joy to read.
