There are times when an open 8ft roller door is great. There are other times when it does nothing to keep the cold out. This week its cold and looks like it'll stay that way for a bit. On the plus side theres been no snow in Nottingham.
Check out the link - - and then rush of to Wales to see my work at CAT.
Fixed the welder. Got sunburn!

Busy week, but mostly at Donington ensuring all those little beeltes were safe! Then studio today - and bust the welder. No chance of fixing it until monday at the earliest. Tried everything I know to repair it (that don't take long). Now going for sulking, with some swearing. That's taking longer.

Tomorrow is the opening at Rufford of the Creative Greenhouse show. Its the place to buy those wonderful handmade Christmas gifts. The show runs until Christmas (and just into the New Year).

Lighthouse Works

Last week I delivered Hercules the Horse and a dozen other pieces to CAT. Sadly the driving rain and poor light did not do anything for photography, but I hope some pictures will follow.
The Lighthouse Works, Queen Street, Astwood Bank, Redditch is now open. A former needle factory now houses Garry Jones' studio and the Lighthouse Works Gallery. In addition to the giant needle centrepiece there are a number of frailloop sculptures, including a snail or two...

frailloop goes to CAT

The Centre for Alternative Technology in Machynlleth, Wales with be the temporary home for some of my work for the next few months, if fact until Easter. This is a selling exhibition, so if you see some you like you can take it home (having parted with the appropriate cash)! Don't worry about leaving a space, I'll just need to create another piece to fill the gap.
Photos to follow.
