Life Lately in Pictures

Life lately has been great, for the most part I've been squirrelled away working on new designs and projects.  When I'm in design mode I tend to hide away and get completely lost in the moment.  My dear husband is great about it and sneaks into the studio from time to time with food and drink and is rather accustomed to me leaving the bed in the middle of the night because I just need to sketch down an idea that is keeping me awake.  I should have some pieces that I can show you in the next few weeks.

In the meantime this has been some of my life...

I have been continuing with my creative challenge, though can't say that it has actually been "daily".... My mood boards have somehow evolved into a word theme...





I have returned to another semester of silversmithing.  I'm now an "Advanced II" student and really loving the new skills that I'm learning.  To begin with we're working with a technique I've wanted to play with for years called "fold forming".  It's amazing how I can start with a flat piece of metal and by repeatedly heating, folding and hammering...


I can manipulate it into a piece like this..


or with lots more hammering... like this.


I've had a lot of fun running workshops as part of the BrisAsia festival....


I've been playing with some new pieces with fabric, paper and stitching...


My little one also has her own desk in my studio and loves to do her own "work"...


And each and every day, I feel blessed to live where I live and have the life that I have.  It may be a humble and simple life but it's grand.




What's been happening in your life lately?

Most of these images have first appeared on my instagram page.  Are you on instagram?  I'd love to connect on there if we haven't already!
