Mending Everything (well....nearly)

The cold wet weather, dark nights and up-coming Christmas holidays precludes much work on sculptures at present.

Further “Useful Mushrooms” are in progress, and should be ready for early in the New Year (keep an eye on the blog and website, we have a corkscrew and salt + pepper pots on the way!)
These will probably be the last of the Useful Mushrooms for now, they’re huge fun but are painfully costly to make – a side effect of my insistence on bringing high grade engineering to art.

Other works planned for 2013 include a piece depicting the pain and frustration of realising an artistic idea, the completion of a piece that examines if cupids’ arrow is the blessing in life it’s portrayed to be, and hopefully I will finally be able to create my full size depiction of a man in the throws of the pain of losing love, labelled “Loss”

Until then, in amongst the chaos of everyday life, there is always room for web browsing, finding these…

….surely this is the most ironic photograph? I love the way it looks like someone has ran through the door rather than opening it (especially as it’s an emergency exit) – quite cartoon like.....

…..and if there is such a thing as a perfect sign, then surely this is it....

Finally, a sincere thank you to all those who have supported me so wonderfully throughout the year, as with most aspects in life, without the thought and kindness of those around us, things would be a lot harder.

Happy Christmas!
