What a crazy ten days! The highlight of which was definitely a long weekend in Rome, a city I have not visited since I was in school, aged 15. I went to Rome for the weekend to see the impressive exhibition "Il Tesoro Di Napoli", a collection of objects from the Museum of San Gennaro in Naples…Continue

Some weeks before Christmas, I was asked if I would take part in a fund-raiser for Cancer Research UK and I wasn't really sure that I would be able to afford the time, so it was pleasant to find that a commission I had planned for immediately after the New Year - a pair of Verdura-inspired cuffs - was to be delayed by about 10 days and I set to work on my plan. The brief - for Cursley & Bond's gallery in Folkestone - was…Continue

I was looking at some of my photographs on Flickr yesterday and realised that this last year has been incredibly busy. To go completely "Old Media" on you all - though I suppose blogging has become a bit old-media itself - here is my review of my own highlights of 2013.

Since I last made an entry here - eleven days ago, which is, I know, remiss - so much has been going on, with my birthday right in the middle.
