Sarah Morpeth Workshop

Today I have been to a book binding/making workshop led by paper and textile artist Sarah Morpeth.

I adore Sarah's work and have been admiring it via her website for years - so you can imagine my excitement at getting to see the real thing!!

Please visit her site here to view some of the fantastic pieces which I got to see today.

Final outcome from my 1st project of year 2

Just thought I would share some pictures of the final pieces which I have made.

The starting point for all of these came from the word 'erosion' which is quite hard to believe as they are all very pure and simplistic.

I guess it just goes to show how art is all about imagination and identification -
Identification of yourself as a person and the ways in which you think.

I personally am a very controlled, routined and structured person and therefore I have taken a completely out of control aspect and refined it to make unique and fragile items of jewellery.

A sigh of relief....

Well I have done it......I have fiinally handed in my first project of year 2!

Only two days until hand in!!

Well this week has been absolutely manic and its only Wednesday!

Its my project hand in date on Friday and I am totally stressed over the amount of work which I seem to have found to do. It doesn't help that I had set myself virtually impossible goals when it comes to making my final products - I decided that I wanted to encase my ceramic disk into a bezel setting, which has just turned out to be a complete nightmare!

7 tests later and lots of melted bezel wire but I think I may have finally cracked it (or at least for this attempt anyway) I don't think I ever want to set foot in another jewellery studio for the rest of the year. Stress is not the word for how I am feeling at the moment.

Roll on hand in on Friday
