Stitching into Paper

Wow was this hard work!

Stiched paper (detail) Bryoney Fawn

I have been looking at a lot of pieces which have a beautiful texture to the surface lately and wanted to add some of this to my work.

Swiss Darning

Working with Colour

Still in the process of developing my laser cut pieces I decided to add sections of colour to the work.

My Prototype… I think.

Then I added pieces of black card and tracing paper using pins and glue

Fondue Night!

Taking a break from Universiry I invited some of the girls round to enjoy some cheese and wine.


Everyone enjoyed themselves and all the food was eaten!

In the fondue pot we added lots of cheddar (2 parts) and then 1 part greyere and 1 part emmental, accompanied by salad, potatoes, chillis meat and lots of bread!

I began the week making various cylindrical shapes


and then moved on to more organic shapes


I found it really hard to make things which I could see how to turn…

Squishy Circuits

Squishy Circuits

We had a session in University today where we made our own conductive playdoh and used this to create a circuit.


You start out with all the ingredients in a pan


Heat on a medium heat until it forms a dough…


Knead it out to the right consistency…


And then start creating! I made a parrallel circuit…


a teeny tiny circuit


Somebody made a bike!


And then I made this thing, which I said was a…

Today I tidied my desk and made a video from it…

We learnt how to ‘tween’ on photoshop in CAD the other week so I thought I would put my skills to good use and make a video when I eventually tidied my desk.
