Drawing at the British Museum

I’m doing research and development for new work and as happy as a pig in muck drawing at the British Museum this weekend – I spent most of my time looking at the Sutton Hoo finds as well as 6th- 9th century Scandinavian artifacts – including a whalebone tablet and bird-motif’d brooches, pictured below. I’m able to do this thanks to a Continuing Professional Development grant from the Worshipful Company of Glaziers!  Watch this space for how it comes together!

Drawing with Wire

I had a great day recently at a  Wire Workshop with Julia Griffith Jones at Narberth Museum. She uses wire to create fantastic three- dimensional drawings and often translates textile motifs into this medium.

After an introduction to her work and the techniques involved, the group had a go. It’s a very interesting technique and I’m looking forward to seeing how it combines with glass/light etc. (Shadows are very interesting!)
