The Isle of Skye, a land of colour and mist.

 Has been a while since I last posted.  Life is hectic due to work and PhD - analytics, but that's a whole other story.  Good bit is I have a new camera and a copy of Lightroom which means any of the photography put up from now on could be used as a quality print.  If you ever spot one you love just let me know :)  More soon.  Thanks for dropping by :>)X

p.s drop by (I thinik!) for more lovely art and photography, a joint project between myself (Christina) and my partner (Christian).

A new piece from the artist Christina J Phillips - What a Man?

Finally got the piece fired and photographed then it has taken another two weeks to find the time to process and post the photographs¬!!¬  Gagh!  It's hard work being a 'working' artist :))  In this case work as in for which is interesting and far more fun than I ever would have dreamed, however, it is full on and trying to find the time to do art and art business is difficult.

What a Man, is in plain grogged red clay fired hard to darken it.  It has a marvellous random texture and colour, challenging and inspiring.  The piece is a journey into a Lacanian view of man and maleness - the other created by media and social norm's as it might be perceived


So, what else has BlackCutWitch been up to .....?

 -  entered a competition at with two of my erotic pieces; Rodeo Girl and A Taste of Things to Come.  For details see erotica above but be warned, this is very kinky clay........

 -  put some mask and jewellery stock into Sam's Cafe in Llanberis.  She has some lovely local artist's and crafter's work in their and a great atmosphere to have your organic fair trade tea or coffee in.  She does the most amazing lemon drizzle cake I have ever tasted.  I am going to take some tea pots in for her to use as display, hopefully raise a few smiles ......

 - I apologise that the Etsy shop has been down.  My card ran out on the PP account so more sorting out to do!! It is in hand and will be fixed soon with new stock in the shop......

Thanks for your visit, as soon as I can spend 5 sorting some of the atmospheric early morning photographs collected on my daily dog walk I shall post for you lovely peeps x.

Re your entry into Bangor Open Art Exhibition 2013.  We are pleased to inform your work has been accepted.

The work I entered was The Merman (2011)  I am hoping he gets to be at eye level so that his delicate form can be fully appreciated.  I was part of this exhibition last year among some outstanding local artists, I am sure that this years show will be just as impressive......
