See you there! x
Head past Penzance on the A30, go over several roundabouts, you'll pass the turning to Trereife House (it has a brown sign) on your right and you need to take the very next turning on the right at the crossroads where the road is coloured red (the left hand turn takes you into Newlyn). Go up the steep hill until you see a tall brown cob wall on your right, the entrance to the business park in on the left opposite this wall. Parking is to the right as you enter. Unit 2 is the 2nd unit on the left.

In her own words, she has learned from 'wonderful artists over the years, including Jack TROWBRIDGE, Carole VINCENT and many artists in the McGuffey Art Center of Charlottesville, Virginia.'

LINCOLN KIRBY-BELL CERAMICS:
"Since completing a degree in ceramic design in 1983 I have worked full time as a studio potter in a number of countries, carried out some teaching, and worked on a number of archaeological excavations with a ceramic component.
My decoration is largely inspired by basic design elements that can be found in all ancient civilizations- spots, spirals, circles, linear patterns and stripes."
After many years of making jewellery in Cornwall the experience of uprooting and living in Australia for seven years caused a momentous shift in my creative process. The act of travelling translated into my work which became much freer, more immediate and intuitive. I now work directly into my preferred materials: silver and 18ct. yellow gold which I often combine with labradorite, moonstone, opal, pearl, tourmaline or diamond. Art Nouveau and Ancient Egypt have been lasting influences and recently I have become fascinated by the Auroras and all things Polar.
