When working on a project I like to spend quite a bit of time chewing over ideas and making exploratory works.
Last week was spent cutting a selection of 'cups'.
And not just cutting.
In looking for 50's, 60's and 70's pattern and colour schemes, I've acquired one or two new specimens to draw from. This little beauty from the local 'junk' shop, a steal at £2.50 per cup and saucer.
Also, photographing likely looking subjects. This 70's vision in mustard was on the table at the Richard Jefferies House & Museum, Coate Water when I attended a BlueGate Poetry workshop with Carrie Etter
