I woke up in the middle of the night dreaming sweater designs. I think they might be quite good, but I have to do the actual work on them first – graphs and instructions and all that.

meanwhile here is my first attempt at a showstopper. I have to have at least one for the exhibition in Bath in February. attempt-at-showstopper.jpg

It’s as tall as will go in my kiln, and I’m trying to use the scratched chalk lines from the beach at West Runton. I also think I might try to use them on a knit.

then trying to make photos of texture, pattern and shape, I have reduced some to black and white.

texture or pattern – but I probably don’t have a good enough camera to make really stunning photos of this sort of subject.
