in the studio

Some gentle pottering has been taking place in my studio this week. I’ve been working on a commissioned lampshade similar to this one. Lot’s of work but the repetitious motion, I’m finding, is somewhat therapeutic. The past couple of months, in relation to the new build, have been a bit of an uphill struggle but, I am happy to say that we now have building consent. We’re good to go! So, building a lampshade out of 100’s and 100’s of small tissue pieces has been the perfect make.

Each of the tissue pieces are wired onto the frame. I love this image of how the snipped wire sits. Like a miniature version of Pick-up-Sticks.

I always spend time  wrapping orders that come in from the online shop. I take great pleasure in making them look and feel special. Today I’ve been making little tags to attached to parcels that will be tied on with string.

It’s a beautiful Autumn day here. Time to leave the studio, load my iPod with podcasts and go walking. Until next time…
