Jenny Pope





'Worry Stones -One months supply' by Jenny Pope made me smile last night at the VAS opening as it was such a funny idea and a beautiful collection of beach combings beautifully worked and presented.
The annual VAS exhibition is a fantastic representation of art, design and craft in Scotland with stunning paintings, tapestries, jewelry furniture and sculpture, it runs until February 28th so if you are in Edinburgh and enjoy this eclectic and exciting show.
"Walking, in particular by the sea, is a constant source of inspiration. I am an avid beachcomber and earlier work reflects ideas around found objects as worry beads, collecting man-made relics, and trying to make sense of remnants of information."  Jenny Pope
