Feedback From Commission:

Type: Painting Commission

Location: New York, USA

“I recently purchased a beautiful piece of art from Laura Elliott. Not only was the piece exactly what I wanted, but Laura handled the whole transaction very flawlessly. I was looking around for something colourful and luckily stumbled upon this website. I saw something I loved but when inquired about purchasing it, Laura told me it was already sold. That certainly didn’t stop the search and Laura quickly responded saying she could paint one like that if I was interested and I could even choose the colours.

The next few interactions with Laura involved choosing colours and getting a proof of the painting before I had to commit. Paying was very simple through Pay Pal and we managed to come to a financial arrangement that fitted my budget. The painting was couriered as soon as my payment had gone through and it arrived within a few days. The whole transaction was dealt with very professionally and was very simple. Laura is an enthusiastic and energetic artist who has a passion for what she does. I could feel this through the friendly and personal e-mails we exchanged while she was painting my special piece.

Thank you Laura.”

Commission Feedback:


“Having seen Laura’s work at an exhibition in London, I commissioned Laura to create 2 pendant pieces of jewellery to include birthstones. She was very happy to help and very professional, producing 2 stunning original pieces. They were packaged well and arrived safely. I would highly recommend Laura’s bespoke metal clay jewellery to anyone looking for a special piece of original artwork”

Customer Feedback and Recommendations:

I have over 10 years working as both an artist and curator and have references, which can be viewed by clicking here.


About the ‘Landscape Gems Collection’:

“My love of clay was discovered at the age of 14, exploring the endless possibilities of earthenware clay, enhanced with glazes, textures and glass.

It was in 2012 when I discovered the fresh, up and coming medium of metal clay in: Fine 999 Silver, Copper and bronze. Step by step I began to explore the possibilities of this medium and after 2 years of development it transformed into the body of work I now call the ‘Landscape Gems Collection’.

When fired, an elegant transformation takes place, turning each design from the pliable clay into solid metal designs. Each piece is sculptural and unique, which often include an unusual mix of high quality gemstones along side beautiful elements, such as glass, enamel, vintage watch parts or even bolts and screws.

This series was given new momentum when I exhibited my collection at The Royal College of Art with Flux exhibition in December 2015. Since this date, my designs have adapted into a series of ever changing mini sculptures and I have not looked back since.”

• My Guide: Learning from Metal Clay Disasters

My Guide: Learning from Metal Clay Disasters

Art is always a dose of luck and a large portion of experience.

Nothing more was true when I set myself a goal to create a metal clay clock, with a completely different technique and design. This was my key piece of work for my exclusive collection of work at The Royal College of Art at Flux Exhibition, London, UK.
The clock was to contain the following key components:

  • Copper metal clay
  • Sheet of Copper metal
  • Brass nuts and bolts x 4
  • Clock mechanism and clock hands
  • A simple, metal stand
  • 224 carat Labradorite round cabochon genuine gemstone

Above: The stunning 224 carat

Labradorite round cabochon genuine gemstone as the central feature of the clock. It took me many tries to get the clock to work!! This is especially the case, now that I reflect on this process.

THE FIRST DESIGN:

My first attempt to create this clock using 400 grams of Copper metal clay only with a sheet on 0.8 thick Copper sheet 15 x 15 cm. I rolled the clay into 2 tiles each using 200 grams each and I engraved the detail of trees, horizon and other details. I realize now that the clay needed to be thicker and use more clay. Once I fired this first attempt, I realized that the detail I had scored into the clay split during firing and both sheets where bowed.

Above: This was too thin and I carved the clay too deep, so it split and you can see daylight through because of the split clay

THE SECOND DESIGN:

In the second attempt I used 300 grams of clay for each tile. One this design I used a flowery texture sheet, used syringe clay to add the trees and details.

Above: It wasn’t fired correctly and it crumbled!

This piece was ruined for 2 key reasons:

  1. The texture pattern de-personalized the design and took away my personal touch.
  2. My kiln was one of the worse purchases for this medium. This meant that when firing the tiles could not be fired flat. The kiln also, unbeknown to me, was not firing hot enough. When this second design was removed it was brittle, not sintered or under fired and meant to split and fell into pieces.

THE THIRD AND FINAL DESIGN:

Here are a few pictures pre-assembly:

And… this is the final design below:

• Out With The Old, In With The New

Out With The Old, In With The New

Over time, every artist has stock and it can be frustrating that paintings can sit and take up valuable space. We all know artists always have alot of canvases, clay, tools, brushes and I count myself as one of them!

I was reviewing my work, from past and present and found stored canvases. I decided to take the following saying literally:

“Out With the Old, In with the new”

Masters, past and present, have often be known to roll their paintings for them to be stored and then later framed or re-mounted onto canvas stretchers.

I have done exactly that. Clear out the old and welcome in my new work. I have stacked up each painting (as below) and they have been rolled for storage and possible later to be exhibited, framed and/or sold.

Once the canvas has been un-mounted or freed from, you are left with lots of staples and the stretcher bars.

The frame of the canvas are created mainly from wood and are nearly the same design that has been used for decades. Even Van Gough used such stretcher bars. Here are examples of what joined stretcher bars look like up-close:

Once the bars have been carefully seperated, taking care to not damage the joints, they can then be bundled together for storage.

Above: Stretcher Bars Bundled From Pre-Stretched Old Canvases

This means I have beautiful wooden frames to use for new paintings. They can have any manner of canvas or material streched on them. You can buy raw canvas which are undyed and hold a special pattern within the weave. I have personally sourced the following. You can also dye the canvas for you to achieve the colour.

I am aiming to dye the raw natural linen material using powdered flourescent colour pigment powders, similar to Brusho pigment powders.

We will see what the future holds and what transpires in my journey to…..

“Out With the Old, In With the New”

So…what is next???? See my new wave below…

• Review: Suffragettes & Art

Review: Suffragettes & Art

The Guardian published an article that artist Gillian Wearing will be first woman to create a statue for the public space, with her monument to Millicent Fawcett at Trafalgar Square, London.

The reason for my personal excitment is that it is that it will be a female figure, but also a Suffragette. I feel this is a truly respectful way to honour what sacrifices both the Suffreges and the Suffragettes gave for my or our voting rights as women.

This has been discussed in a the Guardian article titled “Statue of suffragist to break male monopoly on Parliament Square”:

https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2017/apr/13/statue-of-suffragist-to-break-male-monopoly-on-parliament-square

Dated: 13th April 2017


About The Suffragettes:

“The suffragists failed to achieve votes for women by peaceful methods. Many women began to advocate a more militant approach. These groups became known as the suffragettes. Their motto was ‘Deeds not Words’.
In 1903 Emmeline Pankhurst founded the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) with her daughters Christabel and Sylvia. The WSPU adopted militant tactics. They chained themselves to railings, disrupted public meetings and damaged public property. In 1913, Emily Davison was killed throwing herself under the King’s horse at the Derby.

Suffragettes were arrested and imprisoned, but continued their protest in prison by hunger strike. Although initially they were fed by force, in 1913 the Prisoners Temporary Discharge for Ill-Health Act was passed in Parliament. Commonly known as the Cat and Mouse Act, this allowed prison authorities to release hunger-striking women prisoners when they became too weak, and re-arrest them when they had recovered. Emmeline Pankhurst was jailed and released on 11 occasions.

When the First World War broke out in 1914 the suffragettes and suffragists stopped their campaign in support of the government’s war effort. In 1918 – after the war – women were given limited voting rights.”
