So I left Ohio behind via Cleveland airport and headed down to Asheville, North Carolina, from where I had booked a car to go check out Penland School of Crafts. Why? Well, good question. I had time to kill, and I have accumulated a…

Illness and Recovery

Fencing With Fulco Verdura - WIP - 5

I can think on nothing I hate more than having 'flu. In that, I am thankful that it is "only" 'flu and that I am fundamentally fit and perhaps because I am so rarely ill, I am not a very good patient!



I've just had a hiatus of nearly 2…

Daffodils, Edinburgh and Milan

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…

2013 - A Review

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.

January

Started off icily with a return to work and a commission for the "Small Pond Ring", consisting of tiny silver fish swimming around a mobile pond centred on a blue topaz:…

I’ll start with the excerpt and comment at the bottom:“You put on old records and they always sound…See More
