New direction?

The perfect plinth

It took me a while to solve the problem of how to present “Tea Caddy” at the upcoming Sugar and Spice exhibition. A pristine white plinth didn’t seem right though I did think I could paint a plinth in a glossy […]

Watching resin dry….

I had another morning at Meltdowns Foundry on Tuesday, this time applying resin with a brush. I didn’t put quite enough catalyst into the mixture which meant that the afternoon was spent staring at the work and trying to speed […]

Lotus Dress complete
