Discovering an old print hidden in a folio, became a surprise at how the colours still shine out of the paper. Happy to say the family still think the same and now it is back up on the wall. Its funny that the longer you leave a picture and see it after a number of years, it still sends you back to the time and memory of why you produced the picture.
Back to my roots with a creating an etching at the Bluecoat Chambers etching studio (http://www.thebluecoat.org.uk/content/print-studios). Great smells and lovely company to bring back the memories of messing with zinc plates and inks. Fantastic 100 year old press which I used 25 + years back. Thanks to Frances for showing the way.
Creating a bespoke pot from a simple design and working in 3D at Mon Ceramics (http://www.monceramics.co.uk). has provided a launch pad for a bunch of ideas to develop new 3 dimensional pots and standalone clay constructions. Thanks to Sophie for another inspirational day and present for another outlet to let my creative mind to get cogs working again.
A second attempt at illustrating a dish at the Potting Shed (http://thepottingshed.eu). A further review from a previous lithograph taken from the Londons Piccadilly circus circa 1984.
Always wanted to work with clay and finally managed to with the care of Beth my daughter, providing a session with Potting Shed (http://thepottingshed.eu). Lovely day and great experience illustrating dishes with ideas taken from some older lithographic prints. Lovely way to switch off and produce a new piece of work.
