New beginnings maybe.....

Well this week has been eventful after almost most of this year I haven't been very well but at this point I thought I would be over it and running at full pelt into new shows but no it's been a struggle to be honest.

Struggles internally and other forces at work put me in a position I thought I wouldn't pull out of but here I am with some work to show. SO be kind as this could be my new way forward I know I have dabbled before but this week the clay has pulled me through with me actually desperate to get up and get in the studio to carry on! Wow if you had said that on Monday I wouldn't have believed it! 











So what do we think? I have had a lot of likes on facebook and lots of comments not least from Dylans mum who worries for their ears (she knows me too well!) and they are off to the kiln today not sure of finish. I think I will bisque them and see afterward, oxides maybe?
The last two are going to be on sticks I know a strange concept but Joe and I were discussing how evil they looked and she thought them may help scare the cats from sitting in her grasses in the garden. I am thinking not but we are going to have a go. Will post pictures when ready of course!

In other news Cyril has been removed to send to his new home and Carlos has been framed. My mums favourite and named by Stephen full team effort this week but he has a fan in the landlord Sean I think he will be secretly discouraging buyers as he want him for himself!
