New Start

A couple of weeks ago I decided to start on my commissions and some new smaller work for Teacosy.  After a few days, we cleaned the garage/ studio and now I have a spanking clean workspace, ripe for Christmas decoration production and figure making!

I have several pieces to make; There is a Gay Gordons with red tartan in progress, a Pinkie Nurse and a top secret commission, only to be revealed after the person has recieved their Christmas Present!

I am also working on a Napoleon Bonaparte, A Tartan Chef and an updated figure from many years ago for a very special birthday present... Phew

Remember, this Friday, if you are in Aberdeen to visit ME-IDEA, an exhibition/ installation by Philip Thomson at Peacock Visual Arts.  Also Teacosy is on at Rosemount Community Centre on 4th December from 12 - 4pm, Come along early for a goodie bag and the usual cakey treats as well as the most original Christmas Shopping around....

My work is still showing at Junction Art and Gifts until January 2011 too, so theres no excuse!

Hese is the progress so far....

Tidy shelves and new storage drawers

Clear surfaces..
Starting by rolling out and drying the clay a little - its very cold so this atkes overnight
Cling filmed beauties

Ready to be worked on...

I like to keep figures around to comare size and shape

Top secret Tackety Boots

I'm quite happy with the creases in the clay.
