Yes, I got selected, well “Firenze” did.
Thank-you to Jo for delivering the piece, Charles for the plinth, Axel for the photos, the Bradshaw bursary for getting me to Florence and the lovely people at Alchimia for their mentoring.
It’s a small sculptural piece in brass, copper and silver solder with heat oxidisation inspired by the architecture of the Oltrarno, Florence.
I’ve been making some small pewter flow bowls, again a request from an ENOS visitor and getting ready for Pittenweem Arts Festival (venue 53; 4th-13th August)
They are cast in sand moulds, include a piece of seaweed and are poured in stages (I’m not sure how to describe that) so that you can see how the metal flows.
I’ve finished these two pairs of Silver Darlings earrings which were commissioned by a couple of visitors to ENOS, I hope they like them. I intend to make a few more for Pittenweem Arts Festival (Venue 53). They are mother of pearl, silver and moonstones; inspired by the herring lassies who followed the silver darlings (yes those are silver herrings)
