Seasons greetings

As per normal there's a big gap between postings. I've been working on an idea for a couple of weeks - and it'll be a couple more be i start to get close to finishing. If it all goes wrong I'd rather its a private matter! The start of December was busy with a few commissions, including the piece in the picture. This was a wedding aniversary gift - designed remotely by text, mobile phone photos and telephone conversation, all with care not to spoill the surprise. I was able to mis-match pliers which were worked into the heart shape with some heat and some carefully applied force. Joined with a recovered nail, and mounted on a worn shackle, spanner and a few links of chain.

Fell over...

The server developed a fault and stopped working last night. Now it feels better and is playing nicely. I think it was caused by Santa geting all the elves to look at my work!
Heres a picture of some of the artwork from the Barton pop up shop.

Not just me.

I said that the Bartons Pop-up shop had more work than just mine and heres a picture to prove it. This wonderful clock is made by Travis Kelly - the design is inspired by plant structures. The shop is open Thursday to Saturday, 10 - 4, until the 17th.
