Bird baths

Having great fun playing around with the engineering of bird baths. This is a proto type. So when the bath fills up in our wet winter weather it becomes a water feature with the water spilling out the mouth.  Such fun! Jess Loves drinking out of it....

The press.

Last week at an exhibition opening the newspaper did a story on the dogs. Nice to have the publicity but I wish they would check details before they publish stuff! I no longer work at Highlands and haven't for 4 years....and the dogs are about underlying evil, loyalty and innocence. Jess, my dog, follows me everywhere and watches me with sad, loyal, 'notice me' eyes, wanting attention. I am often telling her to 'back off' out of my space just like the other black dogs.

It's been a while.

Well, the dogs are done and dusted and in Pukeariki Museum.
Great opening and such a good show. So proud to be a part of it. 
I feel like I am going to confession....'forgive me Father, it has been a while'...and it has since I last entered anything on the blog. I broke my thumb a few months back and then discovered I had Osteoporosis. Not been able to create certainly did my head in. It became very full of a dam about to breach its banks. Not a good place for a creative mind to be in. Any way dogs got done.
