IMG_0515 IMG_0517 IMG_0523 The two pieces of work that I have showing at the Angel Christmas Fair this weekend in Islington, hosted by Candid Arts Trust. So chuffed to be a part of this. Last day tomorrow so please head down if you are in the area and support all the fantastic artists and designer/makers.

Also, I am taking last minute commissions for christmas gifts if you would like to get in touch via email. As you can see above, I have done our Welsh dresser. If you have something similar which you would like me to create for you do contact me. x

Texture and pattern

There is currently no rhyme or reason behind the work i am doing. Trying to get back into the swing of things again after being absent for so long. Do you as an artist or creative person have long spells of doing nothing? Let me know. x

My dad had a mass of bird and bat boxes made so I nabbed a few and created some “art” on them. This is my fave though.

Ta-da…these are now available to buy in the Welsh Rare-bits Co. Shop. Click on the screen cap above to go to the shop.

My next project involves a badger skull that my sister brought up from the woods. I thought she was bringing me something nice, she walked in carrying a Marks&Spencers bag so obviously I thought it was food. You can imagine my suprese!!

My ‘All The Things I don’t Own’ piece is now available in my store. This is a delicate piece so I’m thinking of only doing about five, including this one. I shall also be adding my kitchen utensils piece to the shop this week. As I have already mentioned, this is an extremely delicate piece so the only way really of displaying it was in a box frame. There is a lot of box frame art to be had right now, some of which is mass produced with laser cutting machines. My work is not done like this, it is all hand cut with a scalpel and there is much though and feeling which goes into the work. So please bear that in mind. If you click on the screenshot that should take you to my store, if that doesn’t work click here.

Kitchen Utensils – Work In Progress

DSCN2405 DSCN2403 DSCN2402 DSCN2399I’m hoping to continue this project and make a whole loads of paper kitchen utensils. These are just the few that I managed to do today. Frying pans are hard work, as are ladles. Those are little bastards to make! The main theme of this subject that I have been covering is how we define ‘home’. I have broken it down though and obviously at the moment I’m tackling the kitchens. I’ve realised that kitchens are funny places as they seem to have become the social room these days. It’s sometimes the first room a person will see and i’m quite intrigued with how people keep their kitchens. Is it a designer kitchen? do you have all your cooking stuff on display? is it a basic kitchen? Bet you’re fed up with saying the word kitchen now so i’ll wrap up. Its just something that i’ve been looking into as a starter for some new work. I’m quite pleased with everything so far but can’t wait to add more. x

All The Things I Don’t Own

DSCN2388 DSCN2389 DSCN2390 DSCN2391 DSCN2397

 

It was a sad day when I realised I don’t own that thingamajig that you use to hammer meat…

If I’m ever fortunate enough to move out of my parents house, there seems to be a lot of crap i’ll need to buy. This piece first came about with me doing little objects from the kitchen but then I started to feel a little bitter so I started cutting objects that I realised I don’t own. When I do move out, I’ll have two beautiful lights and a lot of cds and dvds…and that’s about it. If my mother is to believed, a spatula is not only a handy tool for cooking, but also an amazing design accessory for the home.

Sketchbook work

WP_000514 WP_000511

I’m in the middle of watching Braveheart but I thought I’d show you what I’ve doing with my day. These aren’t for anything in particular as yet. I’m just concentrating on working on a sketchbook to get plenty of ideas down so I can then start afresh on something more substantial. Playing around with pattern and texture, i’ve been looking a fair bit at the work of William Morris and Grayson Perry. Think I’m going to play around with some paper too.

I’m also going to be doing the back, sack and crack equivalent of tidying up my website…spruce it up a bit.
