What a busy year! The preparations for the exhibition at the Museum Marino Marino  which is nearing countdown – the Vernessage is Saturday 10 November 17.30 Palazzo Tau, Pistoia.

There has been so much to think about and organize,  from the sculpture bases, to the cocktail, the transport, the invitations, the catalogue as well as the poster ( 3 metres x 1 metre 20) which will be mounted outside the museum.

I will be exhibiting  33 sculptures in both clay and bronze .  Fortunately I found a quality foundry, Ciglia & Carrai,  not far from where I live, where I can work my own wax and bronze and learn on the way. I am now at the last stages of preparing for the exhibition  I am updating my website and sending out the invitations. Tamsin Pickeral, author of many lovely books, wrote the critique for my exhibition and is fantastically coming over from London for the opening.

I held a small exhibition in Arezzo in September at the gallery Villicana d’Annibale Galleria d’Arte with Vincenzo Calli entitled Forme e Profumi.

At the beginning of the year the sculpture - Elongated Teke was juried into the 54° Biennale di Venezia, Torino held at the Palazzo delle Esposizione organized and directed by Vittorio Sgarbi.

This year is flying by….  My main project has been to become more accomplished in working in wax and bronze as I feel that these two materials enable me to develop new ideas.  I have been working on my Gallivanting Horses, sculptures designed to communicate a sense of liberty - wild and free - concentrating on the silhouette and balance of the sculpture as a whole.
In July I went to London for an evening vernissage at the Art Performance Gallery, Heathrow T5 to mark a year to the 2012 Olympic Games where I presented the sculpture Sophie’s Spirit of Sport.  In September I spent a few days in Paris  for the AranimA exhibition at the HIP gallery Rue Saint Roch.
On 12 November, at  Art A Colori gallery, Colle Val D’Elsa, artist Fabio Rota and I will be presenting our works together.
