Once a month creatives in and around Cirencester meet up in the evening at The New Brewery Arts to network and enjoy a good cuppa. Last night, in my capacity as the Gallery’s featured artist I gave a talk about my career and influences. Artist and lecturer Richard Webb interviewed me in front of a select gathering of local artists.
Having been asked to comment on my earliest encounters with clay, I recalled the story of hurling lumps of sticky mud on the end of sticks at next door neighbours brick wall, totally fascinated at the adhesive properties (they stayed up there for weeks!)
Big thank you to Roger, who gave a name to this activity – pugsticks! He’d had fun as a boy throwing ‘pugsticks’ at his mates – nice!
