Artists Book

Wow what a big upheaval, 6 weeks of changing my studio, I’ve allowed myself in to work at last! I wanted things to be finished before I moved back in. Saying that, there is still a few things I’d like to give attention but they are not obstructive.

I uncovered some old textile work in the big sort out and thought I might be able to use it for a call to artists I’m considering.

Adding some more colour to it on my table and considering adding organic Items.
The decision to turn it into an artists book was suggested to me and I liked that idea. 🙂
Keep watching to see how it takes shape!

Sculpture Developement

I am enjoying continuing with my sculpture I started at the workshop in Halifax. It is something that is completely new to me so is harder for me to take completely control of.
This is where I have got so far.
I am really Enjoying how slow it is 🙂

Sculpture Workshop No.2

We went all the way to Halifax for my second sculpture workshop. It was at the art centre in the beautiful place below, The Piece Hall.This is my first piece of casting. I had to weave something and include it in the sculpture, this was because of the history of the place we were working in.I have ticked both of my pieces below, which I bought home to work on further.It was a long way to go, but we called in on the Hepworth Wakefield on the way home, which added to our enjoyment of the weekend. 🙂

Printed Textile

I’ve just been inspired to work into and improve one of my old print blocks. I’ve cut into the basic shape to make it look more exciting.This image shows me testing the block on paper. I’ve made some extra test blocks in the shape of leaves to use with it.I’ve had this vintage anti-macassar for a while, already dyed with onion skins for me to print on. I’ve been waiting for just the right block to print on it with and decided this was it.Don’t you think it looks great on my Sofa! 🙂

Experiments

Here is a few small things that I’ve been experimenting with lately. A bout of flu has hindered me really doing much and when you have a break from work, it does take a while to get back into the swing of things. 🙂

Collectors Dolls

A new product for my stall and outlet for my creativity is my new collectors dolls. You may have seen examples already. They are made from vintage and my own printed fabrics.These three came with me to Fakenham Makers Market on Saturday. Victoria, Katerina and Morwena. Katerina has now gone to a new home, yay! 🙂
