Studio sale weekend 30/9 & 1/10

Mirror mirror

Next weekend, Saturday, 30th September and Sunday, the first October, I'm going to have my first studio sale.

There will be the latest works as well as test pieces, sample pieces and other things, which you don't see at shows. There will be, of course, little animals from Etsy shop, too.

Heading at south

My studio is in Canterbury, Kent. Our nearest station, Canterbury West station is less than one hour, with a high speed direct train from St Pancras, London (direct trains run hourly). My studio is 12 minutes walk from the Canterbury West station.

If you come by car, there are ample free parking spaces close by.

Canterbury boasts three World Heritage sites, Canterbury Cathedral, St Augstine's Abbey founded in the 6th century and St Martin's chruch, the oldest in England still in use as a parish church.  There are also lots of historical sites, from Wat Tyler's revolt, Archibishop Thomas Becket to Canterbury Tales. So you could combine sightseeing if you are visiting Canterbury for the first time.  

I hope you could pop in.

Pugs will be there. 

The studio:
1 Foxdown Close

30 September & 1 October

 P.S. Hello, the lovely lady who purchased the Alice mask at Hatfield. I am afraid but the newsletter subscription didn't go well. I was unable to send you newsletter. I am sorry! Please contact me if you are still interested in subscrition. Here

Yuki-onna and Spring flowers

From late August, I completed one commission, made several masks,  and did one interview in the studio. Also I have been busy with sales. Thank you so much.

Yuki-onna - Sold

Yuki-onna, Snow Woman, is such a special mask. I am so glad that she went to a lovely lady.  A funny thing is that Japanese told me that she looks scary because of her long black hair. Well, we Japanese have mostly black hair, don't we?  British people told me that she is beautiful. Now she lives in a lovely hotel, in England. A happy ending.

Spring flowers -sold
Spring flowers has gone to a lovely lady, Japan. She has red camellia, blue hepatica, a pine tree and hazel catkins. All plants are in the garden, except for the pine, which used to be in the garden. She was one of several Spring flower themed masks. Now only one, Primula, is left.

Large works like these masks are available from my website, www.MidoriTakaki.co.uk You could also see most works I have made in 'Gallery' section. If you find the work you really like, but already sold, please drop me a line. I would be probably able to make a similar one for you.  

There are 20 animals who have found good homes from Etsy shop in the mean time. How lovely! I am adding more daily. Do check the shop once a while.

I am going to make another post, later, but I am going to do an Studio sale weekend on 30 September and 1 October, in Canterbury, Kent. Do pop in if you can. The details are here.
