 This time of year my walk to work...yes across the garden to the shed, is taking me longer and longer.
There is just so much to distract me along the way
In particular the emergence this week of my resident Scarlet Tiger moths.
These day time beauties are making my garden look very exotic.
But I am also getting a lovely variety of bumble bees, check out the blog Printed Material for more information about these creatures.
With all this going on, you can see where I am getting my inspiration from.
With my new spot-welder I am experimenting, these domes are about 10cm high.
Inspired by some of the makers at the Craft Festival, Bovey Tracey, I could not resist adding a little stitch to the moths...watch this space for a new line of enquiry.
I am making more light pieces ready for an exhibition in 2015 at the Devon Guild of Craftsmanship.
These moth spoons are ready to be delivered to Walford Mill, www.walfordmillcrafts.co.uk for their exhibition, In the Dead of the Night, starting in July.
Back to my collagraph a month challenge, this is the plan for Junes print, I can't wait to have a go at this gold finch. He has been flying around the garden all spring. So lets face it, when asked what inspires, I have to say, it's my walk to work!
