"Mists over Westland" one of Barrie's popular designs describe his love for Westland which include the mists, rain, cloud, fog and very often sunshine. His works include fine pottery dinner ware and sculptures from clay. Adrienne has been working with silk for over 23 years creating beautifully coloured silk accessories.
