I have been working on some jewellery ideas lately, with beach glass and wood, also maybe bringing out my long forgotten crochet skills, just playing around with some forms and found objects. I have also been working on some new boats with different shapes and mounts so we will see how they progress with the firings. Time has slipped away again and we are now in March! I have had a little rest from my workshop lately as there have been other commitments but now as the weather cools down (thank god!!!) I am determined to start seriously producing new ideas. Keep you posted….

Its been ages since I wrote a post, I dont know whats wrong with me lately I seem to have lost my mojo somewhere… We had the opening last night of the South West Survey, one of the premier events in the South-West with alot of different artistic mediums coming together to show some of the talent in the district. I liked alot that was on display and my favourite was a set of ceramic galloping horses that were very big and very well done. Congrats to the artist who did this as they were my favourite as well as a “cubby”made of sticks (lifesize) with crochet panels in the walls and roof. I loved it very diverse and I wanted one for myself to play in. But I did think that the amount of 3d work was limited. Maybe not alot of 3d artists entered but it would have been nice to see a bit more sculptural work, come on south-west artists, where are you…I know your out there…

The Exhibition “Bleached Fragments” has run for two weeks and I have had good sales and some really positive feedback. I was really happy with the setup and the overall look of the display. It is a very calm room and my pieces, both wall & plinth, all looked very cohesive. Now I can breathe a sigh of relief, I have put myself back on the gallery work list as I actually miss going down there and seeing the new exhibitions every month and now I might (yeah right !!!) have more time! I have finished my pieces for the South-West Survey and they will be delivered tomorrow. Another weight lifted off my shoulders. Keep you posted….

New pieces being made for the Survey, its hard to imagine but they will be the leaves on an underwater reef. Its an interpretation of the struggle for survival of our coastline when there is manmade rubbish littering the ocean floor. Obviously it is only in the beginning stages but I will be finished by the end of the week and then you will understand it!!!! I will keep you posted, have a good week.
