Standing 30cm high, it might not be as big as the original Angel of the North, but it does have whiskers (and a tail).

More recreating famous paintings. I always thought my husband looked like the Laughing Cavalier and now I know. The coat is his own (a bit of Goth glamour) and I simulated the ruff with a Victorian petticoat . While we’re still all living in our dressing gowns, it’s fun to do a bit of dressing up. #franzhals #wallacecollection #recreateart #recreatepaintings #dressingup

Mudlark bird sculpture and cat. Making a new bird from  Thames river finds. Cat is keeping a close eye  but does give a sense of proportion. Wading bird is nearly 1M tall and covered with blue and white pottery. Beak is a Victorian jug handle. #mudlarkinglondon #mudlarkingfinds #thamesforeshore #beachcomber #thames #sculptureart #sculptures #londonlife #catsofinstagram #birdsofinstagram #birdsculpture #blueandwhitechina

Another play with recreating famous paintings at home. A tribute to Magritte and perhaps a look to adopt when you are not looking your best!  Managed to support the apple by sticking a pencil in it and grasping it in my teeth.  It doesn’t do much for your conversational abilities, but does prevent perpetual lockdown snacking on biscuits. #magritte #recreateart #recreatefamouspainting #surrealism #surealart #apple #bowlerhat #recreatingart

We’ve been doing a bit of famous painting recreation . This is my lovely husband as Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring.  Many people posted messages about love this weekend. My own tip for wedded bliss (and surviving lockdown) is chose someone who makes you laugh. The ability to look fab with a pearl earring is an added bonus. #vermeer #johannesvermeer #recreatingfamouspaintings #recreatingpaintings #recreatingart #lockdownlife

Mudlark mirror, made from river finds. It charts the history of the Thames, but each piece has also been chosen to tell the story of the very special woman I made it for. It is a personal portrait made from objects - a pictogram. Mudlarking is all about stories and we all tell them different ways. #londonmudlark #mudlark #mudlarking #mudlarkinglondon #foreshore #thamesforeshore #portrait #londonlife #mirrors #shards #uniquegifts #uniqueart

Sea glass pendant set with freshwater Pearl and Pearl earrings. When a mudlark goes on holiday, they spend their time beachcombing.  I sometimes wonder how much of my life I have spent bent like the letter C, looking for lost treasure.  It has done nothing for my posture, but the magic of discovery, followed by transformation never lessens.

Just made a new Madlark necklace from Victorian blue and white pottery mudlarked from the Thames and waterways of London. Dangling from the back is a little single lapis earring, another foreshore find. How many times have we lost an earring? It was nice to give it a new purpose and it was a perfect colour match. Am putting up some new work in my virtual studio (no.77) www.artistsathome.co.uk.

Am delighted that my Cat in Art “Mogdrian” has been selected for the prestigious ING Discerning Eye Exhibition  2020.  The online exhibition opens 7pm  Thursday 17 November and runs till Thursday 31 December . The only criterion for entry was that nothing could be bigger than 40cm.  No room in lockdown land for installations but plenty of space for a small geometric cat and a bad pun.  Can’t wait to see the other exhibits.  Do take a look after tomorrow night @ingdiscerningeye  @parkerharrisco  #ingdiscerningeye #catsofinstagram #catsinart #catsinarthistory #sculpture #chiswick #chiswickcalendar #hammersmith #artistsoninstagram #lockdownart #badpun

Lockdown Making

This really is Artists At Home!

I have been keeping myself cheerful by making lots of different sculptures, and playing around with our Rude Food collection on Instagram.

My artistic vision has been to raise a smile during the crisis.

Artists At Home 2019 - Virtual Tour

Artists At Home 2019 Virtual Tour

We have just finished three days of exhibiting, and want to thank everyone who came and bought from us!

For those who could not make it, here is a short guided tour of some of the pieces we were showing. If anything takes your fancy, do drop us a line at madeleine@madeleinemarsh.com

NEW! Rude Food tea towel

Kitchen Essentials!

We have just made our first ever tea towel - a photograph of our kitchen collection of rude food! High quality, 100% cotton, and a special introductory offer at £12 plus postage. We are launching it at Artists At Home (14th- 16th June 2019), where you can also see our food collection, first-hand... Or send an email to madeleine@madeleinemarsh.com

        

Finishing Touches

A huge thank you to Savile Row magazine for their mention of Madeleine's Madlark cufflinks!

When it comes to refinement, certain things are not immediately evident. Take a pair of cuff links, for example. For the most part, relatively hidden beneath an expertly cut sleeve unless you are shooting too much cuff (French/Double only, please) they should be a constant reminder of your judicious choice..

Suffragette Chic

We are delighted to have received a glowing review of Madeleine's  jewellery in the latest Out&About magazine.

Madeleine Marsh is a passionate and creative woman. Often seen down on the shoreline of the River Thames in Chiswick and Hammersmith, eyes down looking for interesting bits of broken pottery in the mud, many of her distinctive pieces of jewellery and sculpture are inspired by history.

In much of her jewellery she literally brings history to life by taking a bit of blue eighteenth-century blue and white chine, or some Roman coins or sea-washed glass, and making them up into unique necklace and earring sets mudlarked (or 'Madlarked' as she calls it) from the river, which tell a story about how we used to live.

Artists Staying At Home, Virtual Exhibition 2020

Since 1973, artists across Chiswick, Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush have been welcoming the public into their houses, studios and flats, to view paintings, glass-making, ceramics, printmaking, sculpture, photographs, textiles, and jewellery – through our cherished event Artists at Home.

This year, it is not possible for us to open our homes and meet you face to face, but our artists still have so much to share with you. On this site, you can browse our work, make enquiries and save your favourites. If you wish to purchase something this can be done directly with the artist.

This is an exciting chance to discover new original work for your home and to talk to artists about how they create.

Click HERE to visit the exhibition, we are in Studio 77!

 

You can preview our exhibition, and those of other artists before the event if you sign in or register for a free Artists At Home account.
