Diploma Distinction

Who's a happy bunny then? Me...!

I've just been awarded my diploma in Calligraphy and have passed with Distinction.
It's been hard work, but I'm really, really pleased with the result.

Here's a couple of pictures...

Commissions Gallery Updated

I've just updated my commsions gallery with two versions of the same poem - "What is Dying?" by Bishop Brent.

It's a lovely poem which would help many people in bereavement and was commissioned from me to memorialise a customer's mum.

What is dying?
A ship sails and I stand watching till she fades on the horizon
and someone at my side says,
"She is gone".
Gone where?
Gone from my sight, that is all;
she is just as large as when I saw her...
The diminished size and total of sight is in me, not in her,
and just as the moment when someone at my side said
"she is gone", there are others watching her coming,
and other voices take up a glad shout,
"there she comes!"...
and that is dying.

pen_2227bk_sm.jpgpen_7225rd_sm2.jpgpen_2227rd_sm2.jpg

The clip on ink reservoir allows you to continue writing for longer, giving a better flow of ink for consistent style and means you don't have to keep dipping your pen in the bottle.
It's a brilliant little device. Nib and reservoir and manufactured in the UK by Manuscript.

See these pens and more in the Calligraphy Pen & Ink section of our shop.

A new commissioned picture

A new commissioned picture is on the gallery. It's made from the words to the song, Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol. The owner, Helen, sent the basic design and will be framing it herself, once she gets it home, but I'm sure you will all think it makes a great piece. It's written in a deep blue ink with the "If" and "?" outlined in silver ink.

See more images on the Gallery here

Another Completed Commission

Hi everyone. A week of great weather is upon us - whooppee!! And it seems ages since I last blogged. Sorry about that. I've just finished a new commission which shows a pair of Persian shoes which has been designed using four different colour inks including silver for the soles. I've even got some Persian writing in the design, which translates as "Goodbye and Good Luck". Many thanks to the Persian Calligraphy Facebook group for their help with that.
 
Here's a picture of the final artwork - you can see more commissions on the Gallery , including a new Diamond Jubilee piece for the Leicestershire Parish of Laughton.
