Joanna Osborne….ceramic DOGS

Website: www.joannaosborne.com/

I make ceramic dogs in earthenware, mainly hounds because of their beauty, elegant stance and pointy noses.

I also write knitting books, with Sally Muir, mainly animal books, two for dogs with 50 breeds in all, there are seven in the BEST IN SHOW series and three more knitting books.  The most recent DOGS ON JUMPERS, is just that.

Sally Muir and I have a cashmere knitwear business called MUIR and OSBORNE, www.muirandosborne.co.uk.

I have a new muse, a five year old rescue Whippet Bedlington called Edie.

My ‘Vulnerable Greyhound’ was selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2019….centre stage in the first room.

I co-ordinate a popular Open House during the Brighton Festival. Every other year I fill the ground floor of my house with over 200 pieces of dog art. Artists include Sally Muir, Felted Fido, Lorraine Corrigan, Holy Smoke, Me and many more.

In the early days of our knitting business Warm and Wonderful,  Sally Muir and I designed the now famous red sheep jumper, worn by Princess Diana among others, last seen on Tan France. It’s now back in collaboration with US brand Rowing Blazers and GLOBAL. Available from our pop up shop in Monmouth Street, Covent Garden, selling all things sheepy and from  www.rowingblazers.com

I exhibit at various galleries including Cameron Contemporary Art, Hove, Two Kats and A Cow, Brighton, Fenwick Gallery, Warkworth, Churchgate Gallery, Porlock.

I happy to discuss commissions in time for Christmas (just).
