27 May 2020

This June we celebrate Michael Lloyd’s 70th birthday with a collection of new work; each a love letter to the flora and fauna that continues to inspire his work. Explore Reflections | Michael Lloyd at 70 and discover his new collection online. We have also produced a series of blogs with imagery, film, music and words from Michael Lloyd himself.

Please enjoy part two that delves into the drawing and design process behind Michael's work and he introduces us to one of the seven pieces created for this exhibition - the Convolvulus Beaker.
