Just some of the marvellous pieces on display at this boutique shop-gallery [and thank you Google for the pano] in Steyning, west Sussex.
People make the most extraordinary things; familiar and unfamiliar at the same time like those little raku sheep and the sturdy pigs standing four-square next to them on that stack. Blow a magic breath over them and they’ll come to life. If you’re looking for an original gift for someone (or yourself because goodness knows you’ve earned it), this is the place.
The exhibition runs for a little while longer at 93 The High Street Steyning and you’ll find The Basement on instagram and Facebook.
Opening tonight, The Basement93 in Steyning will be launching its Black and White exhibition and this big old muffin will have a place on a shelf in his guise as a print and a postcard. Crack on, MiLaddo!
… what are ya gonna do?
Luvvit, that’s what!
This is, let’s call her Muriel, whose first job was to illustrate a story called The Bridge in Not Being First Fish, and who today has joined several cats and a sheep at The Basement93 in Steyning.
Here’s the rest of the gang.
You can have a flick through the book and if you like what you see (read), you can nip across the road to get a copy at the Steyning Book Shop, otherwise you can click your way over to that there Amazon.
From February 1st, the gallery will be holding a Black and White exhibition which, I’m chuffed to report, will include some of this menagerie. Very mooootivating 🙂
