Mudlark rings and ring stand, made from Victorian/Edwardian pottery and glass bottle stoppers mudlarked from the Thames and canals of London. Stoppers like these were typically used for the tangy sauces: Daddies, HP, OK, Lea & Perrins, that became a staple of British cooking. I was thrilled to find a use for these stoppers, which I have always loved but never knew what to do with. They do make perfect ring stands and and for me, show the pleasure of recycling. I will be exhibiting these @artistsathome , 14-16 June.

At @artistsathome this year I will be showing a number of works inspired by the history of sewing. Here is another pair of earrings made from 1930s advertising thimbles.  The Birmingham company Iles and Gomes Ltd produced these promotional thimbles for a wide range of companies, looking to attract a female audience. These ones appealed to my sense of humour. The coloured bands say “GAS for ECONOMY”. Ha! Not a phrase that comes to mind today when you look at your energy bills…  They do make fab earrings though. #sewingbox #thegreatbritishsewingbee #earrings #needleworktools #gas #uniquejewelry #dressmaking

One of my favourite Mudlark brooches, made from a fragment of Royal Doulton Egyptian Revival vase c. 1890, found on our favourite canal spot. The salt glaze stoneware was very hard to cut. Doulton did after all make its fortune in the 19th C supplying heavy duty ceramic sewage pipes and sanitary ware. I particularly love the scene, which could be seen as a religious libation, or maybe a posh dinner party. Will be on display @artistsathome  June 14-16. Cheers everyone!!

Madeleine says it with flowers? For the first time I am planning to display flower pastels at @artistsathome , our open studios 14-16 June.  I know nothing about plants and have the opposite of green fingers, but somehow that makes me love looking at flowers all the more.  #flowers #flowerpower #flowerstagram #flowerpainting

One of my favourite new Mudlark brooches, a little Victorian blue and white Cupid set with pearls. He looks very contemplative, pondering the great questions of life, which in my case are generally “Where have I put my keys?” And currently “Am I ever going to be ready for Artists at Home?” Come and find out @artistsathome , our open studio event 14-16 June.  #angel #cupid #brooch #chiswick #hammersmithandfulham #mudlark #mudlarks #mudlarking #beachcombing #beachcombingfinds #blueandwhite #blueandwhitechina #blueandwhiteporcelain #blueandwhiteceramics #blueandwhitepottery

Continuing my series of works inspired by the history of sewing, this necklace is made from vintage silvered glass buttons,  dating from the early 20th century. They are beautiful things, lustrous and organic in design, conjuring up the glamour of the deco period. Planning to make a matching bracelet and if I can bear to part with them, both will be available for @artistsathome , our open studios exhibition in Hammersmith and Chiswick, 14th-16th June.

Currently making jewellery for our @artistsathome show in June. I love women’s history and I am working  on a series of objects connected with the history of sewing. I can barely thread a needle myself, which only enhances my interest and respect for the needle women of the past. I particularly love these earrings. I have made them from 1930s advertising thimbles, distributed by major companies of the day to publicise their products, in this case Lyons Cakes. What makes these particularly exciting for me ( yes I am that boring)  is that J.Lyons and Co , famous for their tea shops and restaurants ( the glamorous Corner Houses) ; leading British manufacturer of biscuits, cakes and ice cream, was based in Hammersmith where I live.  These earrings are light as a feather, a little bit of British social history, and for me there is something irresistible about hanging cake from your ears. It’s a word you can’t say without smiling.  #cake #cakes #londonhistory #advertisinghistory #sewing #sewinghistory #artistsathome

Madlark fish made from pottery and finds mudlarked from the Thames and canals of London. I have found so many uses for clay tobacco pipes over the years, here they seemed perfect for fins. The eye is formed from a vintage marble, one of the best I have ever found. Scattered over the shards of pottery, spanning the centuries, are typical lost items that fall from your clothes or pockets: buttons, a key and a coin: a half-penny from 1963. It shows a three-masted sailing ship, said to represent Sir Francis Drake’s ship the Golden Hind. To me it seemed a fitting tail piece for the fish now swimming across my wall, and keeping its marbly eye on me as I prepare for @artistsathome .  #fish #fishsculpture #mudlark #mudlarking #mudlarkingfinds #artistsoninstagram #beachcombing #beachcombingfinds #blueandwhitechina #blueandwhiteporcelain #sculpture

Jewellery made with pottery mudlarked from my favourite London canal spot. It always feels like a particular gift when you come across the lovebirds from the willow pattern plate. Am preparing for @artistsathome in June, but this necklace flew off yesterday to a new owner. I love Victorian and Edwardian pottery, the joy of pattern and colour .  Modern white plates make me very sad. They might show off the food well, but what will they leave for the mudlarks and finders of the future?

According to the brilliant sculptor @gillian.brett yesterday was International Sculpture Day @intsculptureday . I didn’t know about it , but maybe my “Transformation” sculpture did, and got all dressed up, grabbed a bottle of champers and a pack of London Pride, and went off to party. Something for everyone! They are now back in place ( possibly somewhat the worse for wear) at “Sculpture in the Brewery “ at Fuller’s Brewery @fullersbrewery in Chiswick.  Open today 12.30.-5 and Tues-Sat 10-6  until May 10. Closed Mondays and Bank holidays.

I know nothing about plants, but I love drawing them. Drew this a couple of years ago on Tresco in the Scillies and have only just found out its rather fabulous name: Sempervivum, meaning always alive. It remains green throughout winter and in summer is a magnet for the bees, which as I drew, landed on my pastel covered paper. I took it as a compliment! Also known apparently, with a little more Anglo-Saxon pragmatism as the house leek, because it grows on houses. Will be shown inside my house @artistsathome this summer.

My ‘Marsh Wader’ sculpture is currently on display at Sculpture in the Brewery, Fuller’s Brewery Shop @fullersbreweryshop on the Thames at Chiswick. It is made from pottery mudlarked from the river and canals of London. When making birds I always start with a find that looks like a beak , in this case a large jug handle, and then the bird develops slowly and laboriously from there. It is a big bird, and the sculptural challenge is to make a large body stand on slender, bird like legs ( much welding and much swearing!). That aside however, I love celebrating the birds and animals I see on London’s rivers and canals, the wonderful wildness that still exists in the heart of the city.  Exhibition runs until May 10.

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.

** BREAKING NEWS! **
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!

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.

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!
