Here are my entries for the 2018 Royal Miniature Society exhibition. I've been busy with all manner of different things so I've just not managed to enter anything since 2013. Hopefully I'll get these five through the selection process!

Another good article by Barry Leighton for the Swindon Advertiser. I feel like a celebrity! Here is the online version. Well, there are no more exhibitions planned for a while, the next thing for me is to pass selection for the Guild of Enamellers Associate Craftsman in 2014.
This photo of my enamel box is taken at the School of Jewellery, Birmingham UK, where it's on display in the Heart of the Heat Exhibition. I was there last Friday with my wife and son. We made quite a day of it, going to the Christmas markets in the centre of Birmingham, then going to see my sister and her partner for dinner before driving to Buxton to see my Mum, Dad and little sister.
All five of my entries for the Royal Society's exhibition have been accepted. This is really the best that I could have hoped for.
At first I thought that none of my pieces had been selected. Later I found all five codes listed on the Society's website under the Sculpture heading! I guess because these are enamel boxes they need to be exhibited in a similar way to sculpture.
Here's the five enamels with their titles:
Baby Orla (62mm x 82mm)
I have enterred three pieces into the Guild of Enamellers and the British Society of Enamellers joint exhibition at the Birmingham School of Jewellery. The exhibition is called the Heart of the Heat and it's purpose is to showcase enamelling from the two societies' members. Of the three pieces that I entered this one has got through to the final selection!
