Don’t often post personal stuff, but last night was out on South Bank celebrating my beautiful son’s s birthday. Lovely to be able to hug again, to see London opening up and to spend an evening with wonderful friends and family. I am so lucky to have such a fantastic son, so proud of him, as his dad would have been . Apologies for maternal smugness, but sometimes you just have to revel in your luck!!

Ealing MP Rupa Asha Huq came to visit us yesterday at our Pop Up Gallery in Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre. Lovely to have a politician supporting the work of London artists and to be in a shopping centre that is providing a space for art and handmade objects. We have had a tremendous response so far, do come and visit us. Different artists are in everyday, I will be in Sunday and Thursday. The gallery is open daily 11-5 and is next to Tesco, so you can look at original works of art and then do the supermarket shopping. Is this the way forward for shopping centres? I do hope so do. #ealing #ealingbroadway #ealingmums #paintingart #uniquegifts #gallery #art #shopping #tesco #popup

This Tuesday (4 May) I and my flapper necklace will be appearing on Makeup: A Glamorous History, presented by the fabulous Lisa Eldridge , BBC2 9pm. @lisaeldridgemakeup .  The programme explores the makeup revolution that took place in the roaring twenties. My Flapper necklace celebrates some of the style icons of the age :  Colleen Moore, Clara Bow,  Tallulah Bankhead, Josephine Baker, Louise Brooks.  The earrings are the famous Dolly Sisters. These remarkable women were all performers (stage and screen), they embraced the new freedoms of the age, and pioneered the changing role and look of women in the 20th century. For more information please check out my website www.Madeleinemarsh.com. This necklace is also for sale at Pop Up Gallery, Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre, London W55JY. If anyone would like to commission one, please message me. I will also be showing on the programme some of my collection of original 1920s beauty products, which I collected whilst writing my book Compacts and Cosmetics: Beauty from Victorian Times to the Present Day(available on Amazon).

So pleased that Lucy-Tania, a lovely boutique on the Scilly island of Tresco #tresco #trescoisland  is now stocking my jewellery. Tresco is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited, truly magical. I made this necklace from local sea glass. It can take me years to find enough matching pieces to make a necklace. If you cut sea glass, it loses its lovely soft surface, so you just have to beachcomb patiently and wait for the sea to yield up her glassy treasures. #seaside #seaglass #beachcombing #seaglasscollector #tresco #scillyisles #scillies#recycledart #necklace

Just made these bracelets from Victorian and Edwardian pottery mudlarked from the Thames. The upper bracelet “Say it with Flowers” is all floral fragments, interspersed with vintage beads. They appear to be mostly hotel and restaurant tea cup fragments. The Edwardian era was the golden age of afternoon tea in one of the new grand hotels- the Ritz, The Carlton - or for the less wealthy, at Lyons Corner House or an Express Dairy tea shop. Respectable women could meet and eat in these new restaurants without a male escort, and pretty feminine tableware was a by product of this new freedom.  The lower bracelet “I do like to be beside the Seaside” is all Victorian and Edwardian beach scenes, set with freshwater pearls. These are very rare finds and I have only ever made one other seaside bracelet. With the development of the railways in the 19thC and the introduction of bank holidays, seaside breaks were no longer just restricted to the upper classes taking the waters, but became our favourite national holiday. Seaside resorts flourished and so did the manufacture of souvenir ware. Everyone returned from their day out with a little piece of crested china or a mug decorated with a beach scene, which explains why I found these shards in London - happy memories of someone’s holiday over a century ago. Given that so many of us are desperate for a day beside the seaside at the moment, it somehow felt very poignant making this, and for me both these bracelets are really about summer, freedom and pretty things. Just finishing them off now, and will be putting them up for sale. If interested, send me a message. #mudlarkinglondon #mudlarking🗝 #mudlarker #beachcombing #beachlife #victorianpottery #seaside #seasidelife #flowers #victorianjewelry #victorianjewellery #london #foreshore #floralpottery #edwardian #edwardianfashion

Mudlark necklace made with finds from the Thames and waterways of London. Spring is springing and these necklace and earrings made from late Victorian and Edwardian floral pottery and porcelain. English taste for afternoon tea helped stimulate demand for delicate china .  Tea was perhaps the only meal of the day that the mistress of the house would serve with her own lily-white hands and an attractive tea set was as important as a pretty tea dress . #porcelain #pottery #vintagepottery #uniquejewelry #mudlarking #mudlark #thamesforeshorefinds #forshore #thames #thamesriver#tea #afternoontea #recycledfashion #flowers #spring

Cats in Art - little sculptures celebrating great artists, dreadful puns and of course cats. This is Mogdrian and Catzimir Malevich, master of Russian Supurrmatism (2 puns in one cat!). Both made out of wood. Preparing to put these in the window for #thegreatbigartexhibition2021 . The exhibition theme at the moment is humour. Making my art cats has certainly kept me cheerful during lockdown. #catsofinstagram #catsinart #mondrian #kazimirmalevich #sculptureart #scuplture #terriblepuns #puns#artoftheday #londonart #londonsculpture #thegreatbigartexhibition2021 #davidshrigley

This is a favourite Mudlark find, ceramic watercolour pans, dating from the early 20thC and found individually on the foreshore over the years. The Thames has always attracted artists. In west London where I live, Hogarth is buried in a riverside churchyard, William Morris lived at Kelmscott House overlooking the Thames, Eric Ravillious resided round the corner and nearly 50 years ago British artists Mary Fedden and Julian Trevelyan started the Artists at Home group @artistsathome  of which  I am a member today. The list of artists associated with the river is endless and you always see people setting up their easels to paint the urban countryside views. As anyone who has ever painted outside knows, it’s all to easy to drop your stuff and lose bits, hence presumably, my finds! What I love about the pans is that the are marked by different makers of artist materials. Windsor & Newton (est.1832); Rowney who when wigs suddenly went out of fashion moved from making scented hair powder, to grinding up paints for artists in 1783; and Reeves (est.1766), credited with inventing cakes of soluble watercolour. I wonder who last dipped their paintbrush in one of these pans? #reeves #windsorandnewton #dalerrowney #artists #hammersmith #watercolourpainting #londonmudlark #londonart #mudlarking #thames #painting

Put your best foot forward? Yesterday I posted hands, so today it had to be feet and legs, all mudlarked from the Thames and waterways of London. Some are Victorian doll’s legs, others are fragments from sculptures. As the two longest legs show, there was a vogue in the early 1900s for decorative figurines showing girls dressed up as 18th century style boys, wearing tricorn hats, and knee length breeches showing a shapely ankle. They are very theatrical and were possibly inspired by the pantomime boy tradition and popular music hall stars such as Vesta Tilley, the best known male impersonator of the Edwardian period. A perfect find for an age of gender fluidity!#mudlarking #foreshore #mudlarkinglondon #beachcombers #london🇬🇧 #legs #feet #crossdresser

Been sorting through old Mudlark finds made over 20 years ago! These are all to do with games and are mostly Victorian and Edwardian. Bone dominoes (including a tiny one), draughts, pottery jacks, Chinese game counters one bone, one beautifully engraved and pierced mother of pearl. But what I wondered about were the two circular black stones, with a little hole in the centre . Worn perfectly smooth , and sitting perfectly on the thumb, they look and feel like early game pieces. We’re stones ever used like this? Does anyone know? Would welcome any comments. @london.mudlark #mudlarkinglondon #mudlarking #mudlarkingfinds #beachcombing #foreshorefinds #gamehistory #boardgames #boardgamehistory #londonhistory #thames #thamesfinds

Unusual Mudlark find! Fossicking by a west London canal yesterday I found this clay object, which once I had cleaned off the mud and researched it turned out to be an Italian ocarina, made in the late 19th C  by Mezzetti of Paris, a well known maker. Small, portable and loud, the ocarina was a perfect instrument for the travelling musician and was much used for folk songs and outdoor playing.  Apparently the famous music hall ‘fartist’ Le Petomane, also played an ocarina in the finale of his act, of course using his bottom. Bet that took some practice! Ocarina is currently soaking in disinfectant, and my husband will give it a try to see if it still plays after a century of being buried underground. You never know what you are going to find!  #mudlarkinglondon #mudlarking #mudlark #thamesforeshore #londonmudlark #londonmudlarking #beachcomber #beachcombing#ocarina #ocarinaoftime #ocarinas

Cat Schwitters and Kurt Skitters? Two more new Cats in Art celebrating German artist Kurt Schwitters (1887-1948) famous for his assemblages and collages using found objects. As a Mudlark I have a house full of objects trouves (ancient rubbish) and these cats are made from metal beach finds. Copper gets a beautiful patina from sand and sea. The artist’s name was a gift for feline translation, hence 2 cats! #recycledart #recycledartist #kurtschwitters #sculptures #catsinart #catmuseum #puns #arthistory #makearteveryday #delphianopencall #delphiangallery

“Whisker’s Mother”. Another new cat sculpture celebrating great artists and terrible puns. James Whistler’s famous 1871 painting was actually titled “Arrangement in Grey and Black No 1” since Whistler thought the identity of the sitter was an irrelevance to the general public.  He was wrong and “Whistler’s Mother” became one of the most famous portraits of all time.  This sculptural tribute involved a surprising number of processes and media including clay, papier-mâché, textiles, painting, woodwork and drawing ( check out the Whistlerian print on the wall). Who knew that being silly could involve so much effort! @delphiangallery #jameswhistler #whistler #sculptureart #sculpture #whistlersmother #catsinart #assemblageart #assemblage#puns #catmuseum #delphianopencall #delphiangallery

More Cats in Art sculptures, celebrating great artists and dreadful puns. This is a feline tribute to Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama,famous for her use of brilliant colours and polka dots; and helpful to me because her name translates beautifully into Pussama (sorry).

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.

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.

If you are interested in the history of beauty, I will be appearing in a new three part BBC 2 series Makeup: A Glamorous History, presented by the renowned (and very nice) makeup artist Lisa Eldridge.

It premieres Tuesday 20th April at 9pm.

I feature (depending on what ends up on the cutting room floor!) in the final programme (May 4) devoted to the Flapper, and while my personal makeup skills leave much to be desired, my collection of original 1920s cosmetics is fab!

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.

In order to replicate our annual event, the individual artists’ pages will become fully open to view from 6pm on 19th June. We hope to see you then!
