April 2012 - I shall be able to move back into my studio very soon. The hen is recovering from the attack by a dog last month in there and as soon as I have made a gate for the new hen pen and secured the fence so that they won't be able to fly over, I can start work in there once again. I have in mind a series of papier mache bowls based on work by potters I admire. Time for some experiments.

These bowls are enamel and are here to remind me how much I love to recreate the effect of other materials with papier mache.
And then there is ancient glass that has gained patina and iridescence over the centuries.

And then there are painters who manage to tune into the same response to colour that I find myself immersed in.
