Mark Hearld Exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park

November 21, 2012

Saturday was such a great day. Illustrator Mark Hearld and Yorkshire Sculpture Park have come together to present a new exhibition all about ‘Birds and Beasts’.

It is on now until February 17th 2013, so you have a fair chance to go and see it, and it’s well worth the trip. There’s examples of mark’s sculptures…

including some stunning pigeons in flight .

The YSP Shop have pulled out all the stops with an amazing display of Mark’s work, featuring some new items, scarves, mugs, prints, bags and cards that have been commissioned solely for the exhibition and are only available through the Gift Shop.

I had to treat myself to a new mug.

Then there’s a whole exhibition of Mark’s work, including the original prints for his new ‘Workbook’, ceramics, book covers and a number of display cases filled with a vast array of Mark’s beautiful Illustrations.

Mark was there to also sign copies of his ‘Workbook’ published by  Merrell Publishers, you can find out more about this book here.

A few weeks ago I was delighted to discover that Mark had named my site to be among his favourite blogs, you can see the feature here. So it was great to get to chat with him for a while and to get my own book signed too.  He suggested that we could up next spring when he open’s his home up for public viewings and create something personal for Fishink Blog, hopefully with Emily too. If you have any questions for me to ask him then let me know.

Something else arrived in the post today …. how exciting !

      Thanks Jane for your comments. Pity I didn’t know you were going. It would have been lovely to catch up with you too. I’ve some great ideas for glassmaking but no time or money at the moment. Will be in touch and do let me know if you’re coming to Manchester. Happy day.
