Dirty Dog

Another dog out of the kiln. Keanes Raku clay. I really like this one. The inspiration is our dog Jess. She rolls in horse poo and gains great satisfaction from eating horse poo and the hoof clippings after the farrier has been.

New dogs-Albino dog

New dog fresh out of the kiln. Albino bull dog. I like his crouching position and the way I did his tummy.

little dolly faces

I am making little doll faces out of clay and fabric... to add to soft toys, wire birds and other sculpture, made from recycled materials from the hospice. I love the absolute lack of purpose of it. I love giving them old medals I found found...a sense of importance...the bear below is hand knitted. I have added his face, jumper and the Toko bowling champs badge. I love that doing this art, in the studio, is just as it as.It does not have to 'mean' or 'be' anything significant.

The 100 days project

With a heap of family stuff going on... I had to 'fast track' the 100 days project. I have now printed out all the pictures and put them on the inside of my wardrobe door. I like them. Very helpful when getting dressed in the morning! The project also made me organize my collection and box and label and mend everything. Very useful and good to have done! The only problem is, I just sorted out the studio and uncovered another box of retro clothes!

100 days of design project.

I am still working away on this design project but have decided to remove most of the images from my blog...apart from a few favourites! Then I can return the blog to my own art. The images from the 100 days of design I have developed and made into a grid art work for my wall.
