It seems a lot has happened since my last post. The last few weeks have been spent franticly finishing off sculptures firing endless amounts of clay work, making lots of paper lanterns, packing my studio up into boxes and hanging a full sized willow horse from the ceiling! ...And on Friday the 10th of Feb I waved goodbye to the John Bentley School.
Monday this week i hitched hiked my way up to the lake district to see my sister, who is just setting up as a artist in residence at an outdoor pursuit centre near Kendal. Somehow my route took me via leeds which was a very bad idea so it took me over 12 hours to get there. We have spend the week erecting a giant living willow Spider - apparently called Arthur (photo's to follow). So i am now sat writing as my sister clears her studio.
In two weeks to the day i will set out on the 800 mile journey to Berlin. (a prospect that i still haven't got my head around.) There is still so much to do and to get before i go. My tricycle is in pieces waiting to be painted and serviced and i still need to get a decent saddle as mine is a little tender on the behind to say the least. So here it comes Two weeks of mad packing, gathering and clearing...
And suppose i should get on with a bit of training too!
