Welcome to the first general introduction to issue 2 of the Inspirational project from The Textile Blog. As promised, this article will give some details as to the artists involved in this second issue, which includes the disciplines of ceramics, painting, 3D/basketry, glass, and textiles.
I am extremely grateful and thankful that the eight artists involved in this second issue of Inspirational have agreed to take part as enthusiastically as the original eight artists in issue 1. I personally feel privileged to include the artists and their work within the Inspirational project and know that they will add significantly to this new venture.
The eight artists featured in issue 2 are, India Flint, Sarah Purvey, Deidre Adams, Meredith Woolnough, Sue Hotchkis, Karen Gubitz, F. E. Clark, Jonathan Fuller. The list is purposely varied, bringing together a range of disciplines, personal perspectives, and geographical locations. What all hold in common of course is that they are all inspirational and aspirational artists that take their unique view of the world and pass that through to their work.
This particular article also reveals the cover of the second issue of Inspirational, which I am sure will become very familiar between now and the release date of issue 2. The cover features the work of the artist F. E. Clark and seems a perfect fit for the projection of the magazine and the project in general.
This second issue of Inspirational will be on sale from January 14, 2015. From now until then there will be regular updates and publicity for this second issue.
I would also like to take the opportunity to thank all of those out there who both bought and helped to promote the first issue of Inspirational, you know who you are! Without your selfless assistance and boundless enthusiasm, there would never have been an issue 2, and for that, I will always be grateful. Thank you!
