Sugar Cube Interview

GORDON & CARON COLDWELL – The Sugar Cube Interview

First things first, how did you get started as an artist?

Caron – As a teenager, I sometimes worked with my father who had his own hand-painted furniture business (he also made paintings in his spare time). I did a Mature Students Foundation Art Course at my local college, which led me to do a Fine Art Degree Course in Exeter.

Gordon – It’s in my blood… I am half Dutch – there are artists, photographers and designers in the family. I was taught by an inspirational art teacher at school. I then studied art at university and went on to be an art and design lecturer and departmental head in colleges for 20 years. Read More

DAVID SMITH – The Sugar Cube Interview

First things first, how did you get started as an artist?

I have always been interested in art. As a child I drew all the time – especially nature scenes and never finished comic stories. By the time I was 10, Oskar Kokoschka, Van Gogh, and Paulo Uccello paintings shared my bedroom wall with the pictures of trains and racing cars. So it was no surprise I ended up going to art school and little surprise that I got interested in the work of my namesake the American sculptor, which, after a year of general foundation, led to my choice to major in sculpture for 4 years.

BARRY TOTTLE & LIZZIE GINBEY – The Sugar Cube Interview…

Exhibition number 11 is open and we’re delighted to say that for only the second time since the gallery opened in 2014 we are showing an ‘in-house’ collection of art work. The artists, Barry & Lizzie are two of the Teapot Creative directors and graphic designers like Teapot’s junior graphic designer Mia Devereux – the very first exhibitor in the Sugar Cube. We finally managed to persuade them to hold an exhibition of their own and we’re delighted they capitulated as the results are fabulous.

And now the famous Sugar Cube artist interview…

DONNA VALE – The Sugar Cube Interview…

First things first, how did you get started as an artist?

I’ve lived in Somerset for forty-two years and have worked in a variety of jobs including as a glass engraver and a sign writer. I’ve always been creative and have spent a lot of time at local evening classes doing ceramics and jewellery making.

I was knocked off my bicycle on the way home from work one day and that changed my life. As I lay in the road I thought what have I done with my life? It was after that time that I decided to return to education and in 2005 did an Access Course at Yeovil College.
