They're done.. drum roll ..

Yep, its time, I promised I would show you and I think Im ready ...

Im pleased to share with you my new framed dragonfly pieces.


These particular ones are no longer "work in progress", although as a concept the range is still in the early days and very much at the new and experimental stage. These particular lovelies are done and I am quite pleased with how they have come out. I have been wanting for a while to make sculptural pieces but the pieces I love making have a tendency to be very delicate and therefore not very practical to transport about. Then I thought about framed work. So these are my first tentative steps in that direction. I would love to know what you think ?

I dont know about you but I do find with new work I like to live with it for a while, so frequently I have a piece in the studio for a couple of weeks or so while I decide what I like, what I dont, what needs to be improved. These are a change to that as they ended up being rather last minute so I have kept one of the initial 4 (two of which are above) to sit in the studio and do just that. Im very excited about where this journey is going. So much so I have bought a mahoosive frame for a really, really big piece ... watch this space....
