Beagles are an old dog breed, so old that their exact origins are unknown. However, modern-day Beagles' ancestors lived in England around the Roman Empire era or before. Early "Beagles" were only eight or nine inches high – small enough to carry in a pocket. Known as pocket Beagles or miniature Beagles, it wasn't until later that these tiny dogs were bred into the larger hunting hounds we known today. Beagle Means "Loudmouth" in French. Thank you Kelly for letting me capture your beautiful babies! ❤
I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself to new followers and to touch base with those of you who have been uplifting me along this joyful ceramic journey. I make ceramic sculptures that explore ideas of strength and support, and hand crafted functional ware on the wheel and through soft slab methods. My work is inspired by the natural geometry found in the world around me. Close to my heart is the poppy pod. You’ll find this motif my many of my soft slab creations. By day, I’m an art teacher and I love making connections between my two worlds in the work I make. Diving into clay has made me a better teacher and student. I am grateful for your support and encouragement. 😊

Lubaina Himid was born in 1954 in Zanzibar, Tanzania.
Himid makes paintings, prints, drawings and installations which celebrate Black creativity and the people of the African diaspora while challenging institutional invisibility. She references the slave industry and its legacies, and addresses the hidden and neglected cultural contribution made by real but forgotten people. In Naming the Money 2014, 100 cut-out life size figures depict Black servants and labourers who Himid individualises, giving each of them a name and story to work against the sense of the powerless mass. She often takes her paintings off the gallery wall so that her images become objects that surround the viewer. Whether working on Guardian newspapers or directly onto porcelain tableware, Himid continually subjects painting to the material of everyday life in order to explore Black identity.
Italian artist #massimouberti creates large-scale light installations that look like simple drawings. Using neon tubes and transformers, his site-specific pieces depict everyday objects, such as a window frame, chair or table. Speaking of the inspiration behind his work, Milan-based Uberti says in an interview: “I like to create architectures of light. I employ neon tubes to build places for poetical inhabitants, trying to create dream-like spaces that allow for reflection.”
