‘The true eye of the earth is water. In our eyes it is water that dreams.’        Gaston Bachelard

The world is in chaos. We are part of a vast eco-system that has been disrupted my man himself. The balance of nature has been ripped apart by our enthusiasm for the latest and fastest fashion, food, or fad, and capitalist greed with little consideration of the consequences for the future of our planet. Species are being lost at an alarming rate due to overfishing, loss of essential habitats and the poisons we thoughtlessly pump into the bio-sphere. Petrochemical companies are using the global pandemic to increase plastic production as the demand for oil decreases. There is no justification for this. How will it end?

Judy’s work implicates all of us, utilising disposable, domestic plastic with which we are all too familiar, and uncanny found objects. She creates paintings, prints, ceramics, immersive installations, film and performance to raise questions and provoke.

    Hello Judy

    It was lovely to meet you at my venue 174 The Clay Factory, Devon Open Studios. Thank you for taking the time to chat and felt we are kindred spirits in our thinking and use of sustainable materials.
    Your support and kind comments meant so much. I hope the wax wraps come to good use. They take time to create but so much better than cling film which takes 500+ years to decompose.
    I’ll try to get over to your venue before I go to mine on Sunday. If not I’ll come to your next exhibition

      Hi Rachel!
      It was great to meet you too. I have been using beeswax wraps for years but some of mine are getting past it, so always good to find new ones.
      I love your gentle and meticulous work, especially the marbling on leather. Are you making purses or wallets, or a small bag to wear over one shoulder to carry a mobile phone, car keys and not much more?
      Keep up the beautiful work.
      Best wishes,
