    I saw this graffiti on a trip to Glasgow, its amazing, beautiful and takes your breath away as you stumble across it.

    I have since found out its a modern re-telling of the St. Mungo miracle of 'the bird that never flew'

    by grafitti artist Sam Bates, aka Smug.

    The story goes, “a bird was hit and fell to the ground, while the other boys ran away, Mungo ran towards the fallen bird, picking it up he smoothed and caressed its feathers and prayed over it

    - after a little while it revived and flew away - perhaps it was only stunned

    The villagers called it a miracle and so it was that a small boy should want to help a fallen bird in trouble".

about me

I am a Ceramic Artist, working from 'In Bristol Studios', an 1830's cotton mill situated in the Barton Hill area of Bristol.
I share 'space 1' with fellow Bath Spa University graduates Jo Corbett and Martha Orr.
My figurative pieces are handbuilt and hand decorated, each one has individual characteristics to suggest a narritive.
I also make small batch production pieces using traditional slip casting techniques they are hand altered and decorated to make each piece unique.
