For Lovely Merchants Jane Howard will be presenting a new selection of small scale sculptures. All of which will be individually handmade and limited edition. Her ‘Worldly Quail Egg’ will be for sale. By intricately mixing blue paint with the natural pattern of the shell, these eggs become like miniature globes. Each with a different landmass, they are an original object to give or own and are packaged to perfection. Cards and prints will also be available. www.janehoward.co.uk
