The paintings are still about walks I make regularly and my observations of almost invisible things, like spider's webs revealed by a rare mist. I seem to be using a scalpel more than a paintbrush and then photographing the canvas with sunlight casting shadows through it like dappling through leaves. I have all the cut-out pieces, which I'm yet to decide what to do with.
I'm particularly enjoying making pots in two parts, some of which are going to be lamps. I enjoy the way the pots surprise me with the forms that emerge when joined on the wheel. I learned this technique from one of Simon Leach's Youtube tutorials, which have served as a refresher course for my return to pot making after many years. Thanks Simon!
