Drawing Willow Pattern
Big Charcoal begun One metre diameter. Following my leather tea-cup and saucer, I am continuing looking at how might see the world of Tea drinking. Dunno where this is taking me?
New Pantalone Mask.
Experiments with eye hole shape and paint finishes. Traditionally this mask is black or at least very dark but I would like to see him played with an aged, unhealthy pallid skin tone. As for the eyes, maybe round, wide open though I like the shape on the right
Tea-time in leather.
Life after the ‘Brainatoreum’ has taken me to remembering pot making, to my hands familiarity with clay, to my early love of Meret Oppenheimer and her Fur lined cup. Thoughts about the British ritual of tea-time, how my grandmothers used her tea set, I still use some pieces. Revisiting old skills and obsessions, applying them to my learning new skills (leather and wood carving). Where will this now take me?
Finally installed into The Royal Society.
Professor Brian Cox was in it as the subject this morning. Bravo to the whole Team.
