End of the year BUZZ

I have been working on new territory for the last 3 months, exploring sculptural and 3-D forms in new materials.

It has been an incredible learning experience as well as a way of seeing and working the medium in a different and more tactile way: metal, rust, fabric and wax.

I have met 2 talented sculptors who have given me the chance to explore working with the big tools: plasma cutters, sand blasters, grinders, brazing and soldering tools.
What fun!
