New work by Kim Foale and Philadelphia Hanson-Viney

These next images were very hurriedly taken in my studio last night. They give you an idea of the work, that will be on display in the Off Centre Micro Gallery from today the 12th of January until Wednesday the 8th of February.

Now I have to race up to the studio, wrap the pots up and transport them all into the city, where Philly and I will set them up in situ in the gallery later on this morning. I will take photos of the work in the Micro Gallery and do an edit of this post this afternoon. Wish me luck internet.

WOW. Seriously amazing Kim. You are a true artist, like, in your bones.

Good luck with it!

What. The. Hell.

So five minutes ago I just opened your present. I LOVE IT!! So so fucking outstanding. Can’t believe the timing *insert Twilight Zone music here*

Thank you so much Kim, I’m going to buy a black leather strap and wear it as a necklace.

There is a lot of good energy in that piece. *grins*

Those two black vases? How much???

frogpondsrock January 12, 2012 at 3:40 pm

I have emailed Zelda and explained that the Vases are not actually Black. They are a very deep brown that looks black in most light, until you pick them up and then you see that they are brown. The black eggs are black though.

Oooh. Drool. Lust in my bones.

Luck not needed. You both epitomise talent and class.

frogpondsrock January 12, 2012 at 3:41 pm

You are making my head swell :) And what are you lusting after? The skulls are Philly’s work, the other stuff is mine. It is all very postable you know. Well except for the large skulls and the egg with the red flash that would be like posting a brick.

Elephant's Child January 12, 2012 at 3:59 pm

At least part of my problem is that I won’t all of it – your work and Philly’s too. They complement each other so well. If I had to narrow it down I think I would be in agreement with Zelda. Not that I like the other things less, but the paired vases would perhaps fit best in the clutter that is our decor. Is your requiem a plate or a bowl, and how large is it?

Elephant's Child January 12, 2012 at 4:00 pm

I mean want. Want, want, want not won’t. Sorry. Dsylexic fingers and brain.

frogpondsrock January 12, 2012 at 4:16 pm

The requiem is a large platter probably about 50-60 cm across. I am not sure whether I like it or not yet. The vases feel lovely and silky and normally I am very anti brown but how the brown changes into black in different lights is very interesting.

Rusty Hoe January 12, 2012 at 3:44 pm

Wow Kim, it all looks amazing. I really love the egg with the blue red and black on white. I may have asked you this the other day but do you have a price list for your work? I’m thinking I need to start saving some pennies up.

Good luck, not that you’ll need it. Maybe just breathe and be proud. :)

frogpondsrock January 12, 2012 at 3:47 pm

I have actually made you something already, it is a wobbly rainbow plate. I thought you would appreciate its wobbliness lol I just keep on forgetting to email you. I will email you now.

Rusty Hoe January 12, 2012 at 8:00 pm

Thanks so much for thinking of me Kim, just a tad excited now! And yes the wobbliness will make it perfect ;)

Elephant's Child January 12, 2012 at 4:24 pm

There are browns and browns. There is boring as mud brown – except that if you really look at wonderful gooey mud there is a lustrous sheen to it. Are those paired vases ‘one-offs’ in which case Zelda has first claim?

Maureen (Mo) Strom January 12, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Awesome work, tho, need to share that I visualized Big Beer type Steins when I first saw the vases. But they really made me want a cold one, and I am NOT a beer drinker.. Weird huh?

river January 12, 2012 at 6:41 pm

I hope the exhibition is a big success!
I also love the brown/black vases.

Surely Sarah January 12, 2012 at 9:27 pm

Luck! How exciting!!

janet January 13, 2012 at 12:28 am

It looks wonderful, and I hope everything goes well! Have some fun, too.

kelli January 14, 2012 at 8:12 pm

great stuff, love the dragon’s egg.

Many skulls around the rest of the slaughterhouse. But I’m not the least to make it a work of art. look at those teeth randomized, what is the animal?

frogpondsrock January 29, 2012 at 5:16 am

I don’t know I will ask the artist, Philadelphia Hanson-Viney. Here is a link to her blog
