Friday had been my final day of teaching the high school seniors, and had also included making a presentation to more Uni students, this time to…

So while I was in Pittsburgh I spent part of Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday teaching a group of seniors at a local high-school the basics of working with recycled materials, so that each could make a small wearable pendant. I don’t have images of those guys, but I hope to have images of their works to share with you at some stage.
What I do have however is an image of what I made on Wednesday before class, after an overnight dumping of 5 inches of snow. It’s…

Now, before I interrupted myself with the last post, I was reminiscing about my trip to Pittsburgh last month. Where was I?
Ahh, yes. Now as I recall… I never actually put up images of the *actual exhibition*. I know, installation shots of jewellery are always a little anaemic looking, but humour me here, ok? These are images of The Bridge 12 exhibition at …

Following up from my last post that sizzled my then-upcoming trip to Pittsburgh, I'm back with a 'what went down' blog. During my travels I overheard a local mention that Pittsburgh was on its way to becoming 'the new Portland', which proved to be a far-too-tempting title for me to resist.
OK, titles aside, here's what happened:
I started March by flying to Pittsburgh. I was in town to teach my first ever workshop at the Society for Contemporary Craft, as well as lecture, teach… Continue

I have no idea where the weeks go. It is now two weeks since I last posted a blog entry and the end of September is upon us; the wind and rains, the chilling air, herald autumn without even the good grace of the last few warm days that September usually brings, Keats' "Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness".
Spent last weekend in Brighton, recovering from the 'flu which always accompanies the start of term... all those viri travelling distances with students from far away,… Continue

The Justified Sinner (Dauvit Alexander) came to Pittsburgh last week and a band of local metalheads got together to meet with him. I picked Dauvit and his partner Dingo up on Friday evening and we went to a gallery crawl in downtown before we met the others for dinner at the Church Brew Works. Fun times!
We hope to see you guys back in the 'burgh soon. You are amazing!!!
