let there be light

My dirty work studio is being rewired, hurray!!!! there will be light in the darkest corners of my work area. This area encompasses my wood bench,kiln and mold making area. As I have lots of plaster to mix for my new work it will be great to really see what I’m doing. I need to order some led’s as I want to infuse light into my new pieces, also I will be taking a visit to my friend Deryk Gillham to use his lathe for some wood turning, and a chance to catch up with what he is doing. Exciting times. Is there any one out there reading this?

designs are go

I have just finished the designs for my next work.It will be kiln formed glass set in half spheres, lit from inside, they will correspond to my gesso wall panels, and extend the themes. The spheres will be freestanding and of differing sizes. The shells will be of different materials, wood, plaster, etc. I cant wait. It will soon be time for open studios, but unfortunately my phone no has been missed from the brochures once again, I hope it wont be too detrimental. I commence practical studio work tomorrow, fingers crossed.

I’m back, and ready to go

I will be back in my studio come monday, and it will be a relief to get down to some work. I am also looking forward to Art on the map, and lots of visitors. I am planning to set  up some small glass workshops which will  incorporate, slumping, and casting techniques. i love doing these projects, as I am inspired by my students enthusiasms. I hop I get my studio rewired soon as I need more light, especially as the nights are drawing in.
