A few year ago I wrote a blog post asking whether it was possible to retain the energy of a sketch in a piece of furniture. Today may have been a step towards that.
Right now I’m struggling with the finish of a series of landscape cabinets and would love some fresh ideas. The doors are laminated reliefs inspired by the coastal landscape. As a ‘medium’ it’s got huge potential to explore the things that excite me about this place, but I can’t get the right finish. Anyone got any ideas?
I want to make a collection of cabinets that hang on the wall like beautiful landscape paintings, whose interiors take you inside the landscape, and that everyone can see because it will go on a tour of public galleries around Britain. Well, thanks to the Arts Council of Wales, that dream is getting significantly closer to reality.
I heard today that I have been accepted for associate membership of the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen. It means that my work will be appearing in their rather splendid summer show in Painswick (30/7 – 21/8.. well worth a visit) and that I should get the chance to meet other high quality designer/makers from a whole range of contemporary crafts…. a nice way to start the week.
