Catch a few crows

Crow on the river mud at low-tide (Newport)

Jane Seymour is an artist with a strong connection to our part of West Wales, having spent much of her childhood on her parents’ farm near Newport. Her father (John Seymour)’s guides to running a small-holding, beautifully illustrated by Sally Seymour, were enormously influential in the self-sufficiency movement of the 1970s.

Jane Seymour is now an Irish Ceramicist, living and working in co.Clare where she makes her sculptures but where she also teaches and runs workshops in pottery skills, painting and printing. Her work is displayed and on sale in a number of galleries in Ireland.

This beautiful crow plate captures the stocky strength of these big birds and I love it. Find it at the West Wales Arts Centre, Fishguard.

About bookvolunteer

I'm passionate about books, about Oxfam and about making the world a better place. When I'm not filling the shelves in Oxfam Wilmslow, I might be found reading the books I've bought in the beautiful surroundings of North Pembrokeshire.
