Today I made a big fluffy chicken, I need to make the eyes a little bit more prominent as they are a little lost in all the fluff. I’m going to call the little clucker Hen-ry.

Now that I have a small break from class I’ve got a few long empty days, so I decided to make a little stuffed lamb, as you do. Unfortunately he ended up looking a little bit like a bear, and a little bit like a sheep, wearing a tie. Meet sheepish.

Riding my Bike

I have finished putting together my portfolio for assessment, so I spent the weekend playing about on my bike in the local park. Only seamed right.

Golden Fingers

I have been away from my flat for a few weeks as I went to stay with my parents over Easter. I thought it would be slightly over the top to take my three Golden Syrup pots of sunflowers with me, so instead I excessively watered them and hoped for the best. When I returned back on Sunday night shortly after checking in the wardrobe and under the bed incase there were any murderers lurking in our absence I headed to the window sill. My heart sunk slightly as all my sunflowers bar one were drooped over the edges of the pots, looking like they had completely lost the lust for life. So I filled them back up with water, but thinking that this might be the end for them. I looked at them the next day somwhat apprehensively and they were straight upright again, yes! They live on.

(The cut off bit of toilet roll tube you can see was my slightly amateur way of trying to keep them upright. )

Collaborative piece, I think not.

I am intending to spend this week organising my portfolio ready for assessment, however there is one small being who doesn’t usually share my workspace, Cat. She spent this afternoon systematically working round the floor having a nap on each piece of my work, each time I shouted “Oi! Off there” she moved onto the next one, until there were none left. You can probably see she had fallen out with me by the end of it for spoiling her fun.

There's a Moose in the Hoose

I made this Moose a while ago now when taking a CAD class. Admittedly I took the ‘inspiration’ from something I had seen in a Home magazine, however I drew out the pattern on the computer and then laser cut the pieces of MDF to make up the head which I then slotted together. A voila

Show You're Working Exhibition Opening

Stephanie Liddle pleased she had sold a piece of work

Sally Hackett and her exhibition piece

It was our exhibition opening on Friday and all went well, there was a good turn out of around about 200 people. The show runs for two weeks so hopefully it sustains interest through that time. I think it’s fair to say all the exhibitors received positive feedback on their work, which is what it’s all about really.

Show You're Working Exhibition

This week I’ve been working on setting up an exhibition called “Show You’re Working”. I have two pieces in this exhibition, my ‘Flotsam and Jetsam’ assemblages, and my recent working piece ‘Old Bag, New Shoes’.
My piece ‘Old Bag, New Shoes’ came together as a little bit of a happy accident, but the piece sums up my experiences so far in Dundee; there are some things I carry on my shoulders every day unable to leave behind, however I hope my feet take me in the right direction and my sights are set forwards.
