Freedom Of Speech In The USA

Further Update: to ensure that there is no reflection on either the Exhibition concerned or on Crafthaus, I have removed my original text at the request of the Curator of the exhibition.…

Curate's Egg

Strange day today: some things good, some bad, "good, in parts"!


Bad: my microwelder (hydro-flame) broke down; someone stole my tube-cutter; one of the students has hacked a coil of wire into multiple lengths as they were too lazy to look for the end.


Good: I finished a bangle -




Made from iron nail, silver,…

Long Weekend

Just back from a long and relaxing weekend in Brighton with a brief sojourn to London, primarily to see the David Watkins exhibition at the V&A.
The Watkins exhibition was a touch disappointing as there wasn't very much in it, perhaps 20 - 30 pieces, all jewellery but the Silver Gallery and the jewellery collection at the V&A never fails to please.


Some photographs from this visit:…

Completed - Trouble With Lichen

Finally finished my ring, "Trouble With Lichen", made from the corroded push-rods of a Ford Fairlane, found in a river at Campo Ligure, Italy. It is not a typical piece. I think that this is because I did almost no preparatory drawings for it and it came almost directly from the form of the material and the stones chosen for it.




The cups are set with tsavorite and…

Definitely the oddest thing I've ever made!

Further Trouble With Lichen

This is shaping up to be one of the oddest pieces I've ever made!

Trouble With Lichen...

A while back, a friend of mine in Italy found an old car engine in a river. It had been there some time and was very corroded:




He sent me these bits from it:



And today, I finally started work on a piece using…

Hymn To Amun-Ra

Finally completed a piece I've had sitting about for a couple of months, the collar "Hymn To Amun-Ra":




Made from the brake pad of a Cessna aircraft, kevlar/steel composite from a bullet-proof vest factory, silver, enamel, blue topaz, lapis-lazuli, magnets and a 3d-printed scarab.

I was very uncomfortable about the "Egyptian" theme…

New cufflinks

Completed a trio of cufflinks today. These are a bit of a "bread and butter" line for me and one of the few things I get to make fairly regularly.






The rigid "bean" backs are really easy to get in and out of shirts and don't break. Set with a red zircon, chrome green tourmaline and blue topaz. The nuts and bolt-heads were all found…

Aha!

I didn't realise that there was a blog facility on here! Instead of commenting on my own comment wall, this makes a lot more sense.
Just completed a collar for an exhibition at Llantarnam Grange in Wales in November:…
