The maker, Peter Jeffs, is my last boss, a bit strange I know, but he left our local council around the same time as I left my Arts Officer job. He was one of the Directors and one of the 'Good Guys'. Interestingly, while Peter was always very supportive of the work I did as a passionate Arts Officer and Play person, I knew he really "got it" (and most don't in my experience), I had no idea he was also a very competent and interesting artist in his own right. Funny the things you find out outside the workplace.
As most of you know, I am now a full time soap maker and very happy to be so, however, it is still scary as my two-day-a-week job was my bill payer and I am now struggling a bit to find the housekeeping each month. Hey ho, thats the way it goes and I know things will improve.
Anyway, Peter has been making his quirky ceramic tribal (kind of) masks for a while and decided to put them on a dedicated site, I got the heads up email and went to look right away. I fell in love! I think they are lovely.
|I love this Shaman, I know I should not say it but he is tiny and sweet, and I am in love!|
|I think she (and it is a she) is beautiful, she has a really serene look|
Basically, I love them, do go and have a look at the Spurious Crafts Folksy site, it is great. Also Spurious Crafts has a new facebook page so please check it out and 'like' if you do!
I think these pieces of art are very individual, you either like them or they leave you a bit non plussed. I think they are great and am very happy with my present to myself!
Do let me know what you think, do you like them?
