I'm experimenting with combining pressed plants and folklore text snippets (with some moveable type) in clay to create some necklace pendants for glass production. Cue an excuse to buy books on plants and folklore. One thing that is great about having all that commissi...

This image was one of those that  wanted to come together. It is a collage of a Selkie paper puppet I made in May and some paper I printed last week (surplus from a giant bar chart required by the in-house critic).

The mould room at the Canberra Glassworks is usually a quiet place, with one or maybe 2 people calmly working away. July however is breaking that pattern with 5 projects on the boil and I'm currently working on 3 of them.

Determined to actually read my book club title for July's after slacking a few months, I jumped into Lanny by Max Porter with no idea of the theme or mood. I was quite delighted with Lanny.

The desk top & mobile wall paper I created for my Patron's for July 2019 is a digital collage of 2 mono prints. I wonder who or what is watching the owl swooping down through the evening sky?
