Apologies first of all for my absence. As I mentioned before, I have never blogged before in my life and its taking a while to bed it into my brain "keep the blog updated!"
It was my absolute pleasure to work with Matthew Tomalin, Pamela's husband, to get her work shown at The Goldsmiths' Centre in London earlier this year. In case you didn't know, Pamela very sadly died from an aggressive brain tumour just over two years ago (May 2014) and Ruthin Craft Centre asked me to co-curate an exhibition celebrating her amazing talents that opened there in 2015.
Subsequently Matthew asked if I would help him work on an application to take the show to a larger audience at The Goldsmiths' Centre - which we were successful in securing. The show finally opened in March this year and was a tremendous success. It was wonderful to have Pamela's work exhibited in this centre of excellence for silversmithing and jewellery where it very much held its own, and was greatly appreciated.
Many thanks to all at TGC for their help, especially Rachel Fisher for all her assistance in making the show happen, together with Isabel Keim who secured such great press and publicity.
