I cannot express more how thank full I am for everyone’s support in 2016. It has been a very exciting journey for me and my work with many highlights.
Here are a selection of some highlights in 2016 and what’s in store for me in 2017.
Creating the bespoke coffee table for Ty Newydd, Llanystumdwy was a big challenge, and very much worth while. Looking forward to working with them again in 2017 and collaborating with Joe Roberts on an even bigger sculptural and functional project. Watch this space!
TROPHIES TROPHIES TROPHIES!! My little workshop was a sea of trophies during June for Coleg Meirion Dwyfor’s end of year Student Awards. That was an honor for me to be asked to create 46 trophies for their ceremony. I also made some for local sporting events in my area too.
I was lucky enough to be selected for Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair, Made by Hand, Portmeirion Christmas fair and had a stall at the National Eisteddfod for the first time this year too.
I thoroughly enjoyed each show and they proved a huge success for me, I made some great friends and contacts. They were all exhausting in their own way but were well worth while to do and can’t wait to do it all again next year!
As a result of participating in GNCCF I am now listed on the craft council maker’s Directory. Here is a link to my page-http://www.craftscouncil.org.uk/directory/maker/miriam-jones/
I have many exhibitions coming up in 2017.
The first one will be ‘IMPRINT’ with Elin Huws, my former art teacher at Plas Glyn y Weddw. I will be making some brand new Work for this exhibition as a homage to Elin’s work. Here is a link and Full details to the exhibtion- https://www.oriel.org.uk/en/events/2016/imprint

Happy New Year to everyone! I hope 2017 brings you Joy and Happiness.
