SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE

AND

THE KMJ IS OPEN

FOR THE 2020 SEASON

Right now however, and until we hear otherwise from above, we will be operating by appointment as there is practically no one around due to the pandemic measures still currently in place as I write this in early June. But as the season progresses, and we finally get beyond the point we seem stuck in at the moment, we aim to fling our doors open and spill out of the gallery itself – out onto our nicely developing new Patio, now literally bursting into life with countless thousands of tiny wildflower shoots.

But while the signs of life might be bursting out of every corner of our tiny patio, including the microgreens you see tumbling out of the Bath stone planter above, nothing can shake a stick at the sheer audaciousness of Green Man this year. Never has he plumed like this. Just take a look; the man is buried in a veritable hedgerow of edible greens.

Now, if you watched the three minute video above, you will no doubt know what all of this is about. And if you want to know more about Green Man please Click Here to visit his Home Page.  But I am here to say that the sheer bountiful radiance of his display this year surpasses any in his decade or so of existence.

Take his beard for instance, isn’t it lush? The poor, parched and brown patches of parking lot moss rescued by Kris – and attached to Greeny via toothpicks – are now a verdant, thriving and fascinating colony intent on spreading in every direction.

But the truly startling feature of Green Man this year is that amazing thatch of wheat grass now towering over his Winterset limestone like a tall, verdant forest. Just how high it will grow is at this point impossible to say, but at the rate is has been bolting out of his head I’d say that the sky is the limit, or so it would seem.

Just how this summer and autumn season will shape up is anyone’s guess at the moment, but I am optimistic.  From what I see everyone is changing and adapting to what is now touted as “The New Normal”, and in regards to complying with the the rules and regulations Kris and I plan to follow them to the dot.  Consequently we are now in the process of setting our stall out in the fresh air via our new and expanding Patio display, and limiting indoor gallery visitors to one group at a time.  Everything will of course be wiped down and sanitary, and even our new sales system allows for non-contact transactions via smart phone.

Please stay tuned for news and information regarding The KMJ for we have not only revamped our business into the Studio Sculpture Gallery that we set out to achieve over three years ago when Kris and I first took possession of the former plumbing shop, but we feel that this new embodiment of our original goals is now well nigh spot on with our vision for the place back in 2017.

And now, just in time for what will now be our fourth summer in business, we will very soon be releasing a whole new body of work based on customer feedback, along with my own intuition that, when you see the new pieces being carried out of my little studio in the back, you’ll just love ’em.  In fact, I can’t wait to show you around and explain everything; and so make sure to book your visit today via the contact box at the top of the page and we will go from there. I hope to see you soon.
