This exhibition presents a feast of colour to blow away the cold light of January. It is a joyous boost for the eye and soul - a must see.
 
Anthony de Jong Cleyndert
 
“I have worked on a series of large oil paintings depicting landscape views and self-portraits, spacial in content. Recently other ideas have emerged through printmaking on a big scale creating more translucency in colour and shape relating to classical musical works of life and death”. Anthony lives in Hertfordshire and has a studio at Parndon Mill

Teresa Chlapowski
 
Having been a knitwear designer for many decades, the desire to create her own 'Art' finally took over. Starting with ceramics and sculpture, Teresa discovered glass and fell in love with this amazing, alchemic medium; an alternative universe of just light and shadows.
 
She creates both sculptural and functional glass pieces. Her fused vessels and panels express her previous textile background and love of pattern and colour, creating one off slumping moulds which have a fabric, flowing quality. In her more sculptural pieces, she focuses on the figurative that gives a glimpse of the human form that is both mysterious and revealing. Teresa uses a variety of techniques including fusing and sand casting, as well as combining glass with ceramics and photography.
 
Her inspiration comes from the sea and reflections, ancient art and archaeology, the human figure and its shadows, textiles and photography and with that, the detailed patterns that are found in everything around us.
 
Member of: CGS, Just Glass Society, GAS, the Chelsea Art Society (council member), APA (Association of Polish Artists in GB), HVA (Hertfordshire Visual Arts), EWA (East West Arts, now IAL) and takes part in their various group exhibitions.
