Interdisciplinary. Community. Advocacy. Humor.
Last week kicked off amusingly with a tweet from an ex-student, Christina Leon, who found this in the Tower Of London:
Remind you of anyone? Probably there because Queen Theresa has had enough of…

It's been fairly quiet since my last post but I've managed to squeeze in a trip to London with my ex-colleague and still-friend, Rachael Colley, a trip which involved culture and a lot of work by Lin Cheung. We started off with a visit to the V&A to see the final choices for the…Continue

I have no excuse, no apology. I've just been too busy with minor things to get round to updating the blog, so it is almost eight weeks since I last posted. Unforgivable.
Music first and on a wet an windy night, I cycled out to "The Hare and Hounds" to hear Mats Gustafsson's blistering jazz trio, "…

Another busy week with no chance to wind down from the post-conference activities. Not so much to report - finishing off a lot of work before the holidays:

A very full week last week, kicking off with meetings at Craftspace about an exciting project which is coming up in July, about which I will report in due course, and an opportunity for my students to design some very prestigious sporting…Continue

I was very pleased to be invited to participate in an exhibit as part of a representational group of Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts faculty. Makers from a variety of media who have taught workshops at the venerable craft school have work on display until May 21 at the Folk Art Center in Asheville, North Carolina. This is also the home of the Southern Highland Craft Guild and is located on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Its an educational and retail center set amidst one of the most scenic…Continue

Not having posted for four weeks, you'd be forgiven for thinking I'd dropped off the face of the earth, but I was just having an extended Christmas holiday and settling back into work again. I didn't feel inclined to do a retrospective of the year gone by and I've a horrible feeling that next Christmas I may not feel like doing a retrospective then. In short, I'm somewhat lacking in global optimism just now.
That as may be, things here are going along as normal.
So, Christmas and new year approach and, like most right-thinking people (Left-thinking, I mean!), I won't be sad to put this miserable 2016 to bed. Still, it is also the time of year when people wear silly hats and bad jumpers…Continue
In a week dominated by Trump and other fascist excesses, this terrible marketing puff for - believe it or not - flats in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham struck me as desperately appropriate. On another week, I might have mused on…

How could I forget?
In my last post, I completely forgot to note that I'd also taken a trip to the New Ashgate Gallery in Farnham for the opening of the ACJ "Choice!" show there on the Friday night. This is the 2016 edition of the annual show of work by members and we were…
The Baltimore Jewelry Center is partnering with Google for an online exhibition, Body of Work, that will be an ongoing part of their Cultural Institute website (…Continue

Not much to report this week, so I'll digress on the new garden in Birmingham, for where I have been struggling to find that most proasic of vegetables (fruits, I suppose): rhubarb. I have always thought I hated rhubarb but one day a few months back, my colleague, Claire Price, brought in a jar of jam for us to eat at one of our regular staff breakfasts. I tucked in without giving it much thought and marvelled at the balance of sour and sweet, at the hint of orange, at the amazing scent. It…Continue
This week has been taken up with the tough paperwork exercises of re-writing the whole curriculum at the School of Jewellery to make it more dynamic and flexible. We've taken the opportunity to make the whole thing more craft-based, which is…
