Lincoln Kirby-Bell Ceramic Artist joins Cherry Picked For You

The new artist to join our website this week is Ceramicist Lincoln Kirby-Bell.  Lincoln says, "I enjoy making work that is witty and fun and can be used every day." This is borne out by his quirky mugs, in particular the face mug with its interesting interior, which you cannot see, of wavy yellow lines running down into a smiley face at the base. There are four designs to choose from.

Lincoln has lived in many countries around the world and for more than two decades he has been leaving pieces of his work, decorated pebbles (pictured below), for people to find and wonder how and why it was left there. Having worked on  many excavations and discovering shards of pottery or relics and contemplating their origins, this has been Lincoln's way of leaving his mark on the earth and stirring up a bit of mischief.

Apparently,  if you find one of his pebbles and recognise it as his and he verifies it is indeed his work, you can claim a piece of his pottery for free!!
