The last few weeks (inbetween glazing and firing medieval ceramics and de-teaing tea bags, knitting, latch hooking etc., into the evenings....) I have being wreaking havoc for the neighbours with all the noise pollution echoing through the valley, banging and clanging all through day... I have tried to mix it up abit with my routine as to give them a break from all the noise, but the last few weeks have been fairly intense. - I did manage to take a couple of images 'in the makings' ...and NO my bench is not always this tidy, I couldn't help myself, I did clear the bench for some of the photos.
Of course these images show works in progress, in contemplation, the maybe's and the maybe not's - just a snippet behind the scenes and what can find its way onto my work bench.
I am currently working on these following three pieces at the moment, doing the finishing touches... the two lighter pieces have been sanded with the darker third piece next in line. I like the randomness of working with the lay of the waterjet cuts each piece takes on its own identity and presence. The protruding plates you can see, are for the porcelain bone to rest onto - these are designed to hang on the wall, backed with another material, to which I will reveal at a later date.
