Blog Tired....

I am such a bad blogger.... you'd think after the degree show, I might have a bit of time?

Nope.  Aside from invigilating the show, and hanging around all day on assessment days (two of them) as our work was in the main thoroughfare so we could not leave our visual and supporting studies out on display, so we were played the waiting game for two days too.

Then, straight in to making for Rufford and for me, New Designers - seeing as the work I made is WAY to big to take to either event, and not suitable for the first one anyway.

I've been making tiles like they might go out of fashion, and assembled some of them in to wall art.  No photos yet, but hopefully I will remember to snap them before I sell them all at Rufford Earth and Fire!

Wish me luck (and lots of interest!)

...and breathe!

Phew, what a week!!

After getting the wall piece up last week, I arranged the glass fixings and put up the design board.

ALL DONE!  Well, not quite.  All of last weekend was spent preparing for assessment on Tuesday, and the external examiner on Thursday.  But it literally is all done now, there is no more I can do, but sit and wait for results day.

Preview Night was on Wednesday, it was quite a busy evening, although nobody asked if my piece was for sale!  Actually, I noticed that quite a few people, as they walk by, don't even seem to notice it.... but I am not taking this as a bad thing, I think its probably quite a compliment - perhaps people don't realise it's even part of the show - it looks quite at home on the wall where it is... here's a pic:

Unfortunately, the light isn't brilliant where it is, so those panels don't show up as well as they will when it's in it's proper place in the school.... and they reflect a lot on the photo.  I will try and take a better one this week.
