A SMALL PRINT EXHIBITION OF DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES AND TYPES OF PRINT. THE MAKERS ROOM AND STAIRS - COME AND FIND OUT ABOUT LOCAL PRINTMAKING COURSES AND WORKSHOPS IN THE GALLERY
Gideon Peterson works mostly in metal, which is heated and formed using many traditional blacksmith techniques. He draws a lot of inspiration from his surrounding environment.
His show focuses on seeds and is a collection of studies and ideas that represent the potential to grow into something amazingly beautiful, in nature.
Peterson studied sculpture at Wimbledon School of Art working in a variety of materials and techniques. After graduating he worked for various artists such as Sir Anthony Caro making sculpture for galleries and scenic art companies designing and producing high quality work for film, television, theatre etc.
In 1997 he returned to Wales and focused on my sculpture. Public art commissions are now his main body of work. As well as the sculptures he designs and make pieces of furniture and craft. These he approaches from a sculptural perspective. Using different types of metal, often incorporating different types of elements such as glass, stone and wood.
Many of his inspirations come from nature and the landscape within which he lives. His Celtic roots has a heavy influence on his work as well as the material itself.

ONE ILLUSTRATOR. ONE TOOL SHED. OVER 100,000 ITEMS TO DRAW AND CATALOGUE.
Handel Jones passed away in 1994 and his wife Myrtle has treated his toolshed as a mausoleum ever since. It has remained relatively untouched and Lee began drawing its contents in 2013. He is in the process of creating an illustrated inventory of the entire contents and works to this set of rules:
1. If the item can be picked up and doesn’t crumble if rubbed - draw it.
2. If the packet/container is/has been opened, empty it, draw items, replace them, draw container full.
3. If the packet/container has not been opened, it will not be, and drawn as found.
4. If there are multiples of the same items - draw them all.
To date he has illustrated over 6,500 items and estimates the total over 100,000.
