Some lovely pieces were made by the people at my workshop yesterday, a super eye for design.
I’ve since made a couple more pairs like these earrings as I think the colour and design is good (shame about the photo)
Some of the participants busy making.
Pittenweem Arts Festival continues until Sunday, pop by and see me at Venue 53 if you are in the area.
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)

Looking back to the sunny day when I took pieces down to the Fisher Gallery in Pittenweem.
Their summer show opens tomorrow, June 24th 2017.
These are the six pieces they will be showing, so if you are in Pittenweem for ENOS, or any other reason, maybe just pop in and see them.
