Giffins by Jill Moger
THREE GRIFFINS  -  Although predominantly a sculptor of wildlife, Jill received a commission earlier this year, to make a miniature griffin sculpture as a mascot for the bonnet of a new classic car.  However her client was not certain what style he wanted as the fabled griffin is purely fantasy but often depicted as half lion and half eagle.  Jill made four griffins, each in a different style.  Modelled in a semi porcelain clay, they were glazed and fired but uncoloured for the client to make his choice.  The three remaining griffins have now been overglazed in different ways as pictured here whilst the client’s chosen one has gone to the bronze foundry to fulfil its destination.

Thank you!

As always, our exhibition would not be possible without a dedicated group of members who make our show possible. 

Many hours are spent organizing, selecting, hanging, photographing and packing works. 

If you are a member and would like to help, please contact Claire Hucker for further information.

CALL FOR ARCHIVE MATERIAL

Like many venerable art societies, the RMS was proud of its historical archives; however, during World War II their London headquarters were bombed resulting in the loss of these records.

For some years the organisation has been trying to gather together a complete run of the Society's annual exhibition catalogues but we still need the following years: 1914-1920, 1922-1924, 1927, 1940-1943, 1945, 1948 and 1950.

The Society would be delighted to hear from anybody who has copies of these missing catalogues - even photocopies would be adequate for archive purposes.

If anybody can help please contact the RMS Archivist, Anthony Lester - lesterartcritic@gmail.com
