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. ๐Ÿ™‚
Keep watching to see how it takes shape!

While I was being part of the art trail with Sarah and in between visitors, I carried on doing some work on my stones project.ย It was really nice to relax and enjoy the feel of the clay. I finished off the earlier forms I had done by smoothing them and making holes I wanted. Now they are ready for first firing. I think they look beautiful just like that!Stones 1ย These are similar shapes I’ve started, cut in half and scooped out. The scooping out was yummy as the clay was really soft. I am really looking forward to continuing with these! ๐Ÿ™‚Stones 2
