Well, I've not been blogging so much of late because I've been working on a project which I have been forbidden from documenting until the client has received it!

It has been the Christmas Sale at work this week. All my students make their work and sell it in the college, a percentage comes to the department for buying equipment and the balance goes to the students themselves. We keep the prices low and go for volume and this usually pays off, especially as most of the customers are other students. 

One of my 3rd year students, Anne Walker, decided to sell a piece which she made before she even started on my course, this alien-thought blocking hat, which doesn't fit me at all (but which looks fantastic on smaller heads with hair):

Hat To Prevent Alien MI5 Agents From Implanting My Thoughts

 

Other than that, I've been working on my "Imperial Overcoat Star Of The Order Of Aksentii Poprishchin" which should be finished in the next few days. Keen observers will note the similarity between this and the Christmas-tree ornaments I made for Goldsmiths' Hall!

I've been wanting to make a piece on a Gogol theme for some time now and inspired by an incredible Fabergé piece on the Russian Jewellery website I posted some time back, the "Antique Russian Imperial Breast Star of the Order of Saint Alexande...", I thought I would make a piece in response!
