For all sorts of reasons it’s been difficult to find the time and energy to make work this year. So I’m currently working on small things to ease myself back in. I’ve mentioned before wanting to get into 3D work, and my attempts so far have been very slow and not that successful. But the small-scale effort is beginning to pay off and I will hope to move on to more ambitious output. This photo shows some little figures I’ve been making out of air-drying clay. It’s not easy, as the material has little plasticity compared to firing clay, so a lot can go wrong. But it’s something I can be absorbed in and it’s kicking off other ideas. Since doing this, I have also started a series of small paintings/collages on watercolour postcards, which I’ll be posting in a few days time.
