It seems that birds are currently more of a nuisance on my plot than other creatures, they have been feasting on various tasty seedlings in particular broccoli and celeriac. So, I have brought along some of the produce of my studio from many years ago in an attempt to scare the birds away... or at least confuse them.
My last Open Studio visitor popped his head around the door when I wasn't actually open, I was just about to lock up and hear an old friend in his band, 'Death by Skiffle', in the Melting Pot Cafe. However, this visit was serendipitous, a technician from a nearby University, who inspired my thoughts towards moving the work into its next phase. He used the term 'entropy' to describe what I was doing and said he could see the work becoming 3D.
I am interested in things and processes that are often overlooked or spurned as irrelevant. In 2006 I began working an allotment in Derbyshire that became my field for research and working the ground has been important ever since.
