New Year, new work, Typeset and Zoom Milwaukee
Happy New Year
..and a great start to the new year. One of the things on my agenda was a reworking of the original glass Spit. Still inspired by the enamelling workshop with Jessica Turrell in July (for which I missed Fibre East – sorry Hilary!) and driven by a submission deadline for TypeSet, an exhibition taking place in 2016 at Zoom, Milwaukee, I’ve had nose to the grindstone for the last couple of months and managed to get 3 brooches and a neckpiece (virtually) finished for the 1st January deadline. Relief! Zoom looks really interesting and it certainly rang all the right bells for me.
TypeSet is an exhibition exploring the connections between art jewelry and literature and jewellers who embrace text, story, and history in their work were encouraged to apply. Not sure if Spit fits the bill but worth having a go and crucially a great driver for me to get Spit 2016 started.
So with some work currently in the Dolby Gallery in Oundle,
Spit 2016 on the table and a couple of greenware vessels waiting to be fired for the start of Maker Mark Legacy 2 the new year is off to a flying start……
