I’m so delighted – and still a little surprised to be honest – that my Final Major Project for University (in which I made an up-scaled box of Chocolates) was chosen to be included in the upcoming Suddenly Last Summer 2018 Exhibition, soon to be held at the Arts University! (3rd Sep-3rd Nov) 🙂
This seriously is such a lovely ending to a rather emotional 3 years! I know it’s terribly cliché, but, I truly can’t believe where the time went!
It sounds a bit of an Oscar moment (sorry) but, I just need to say the biggest Thank You to everyone who gave me such support during my degree – especially my wonderful tutors – and now The Gallery Team too, who are putting together such a beautiful exhibition! 🙂
But, from old times come new beginnings…
I learnt so much during my degree – such as different techniques and new materials – that I’ve been thinking of ways in which I can apply them to my Miniature pieces…and I must say, I’m a little tiny (pun not intended…but, it sure does work!) bit excited!
I’m not sure if any will work, but, it sure will be fun to try – I hope! Nah, of course it will be…what could possibly go wrong! 🙃
I love learning new things, so, success or not, I’ll be sure to share my results and see what you all think!
At the moment though, I’m so delighted to be making a beautiful Cast Brass Doorstop in the form of a Dolphin, to be included within Upton House and Gardens ‘Made to Measure’ Project: Upton in Miniature.

I had to wait for a couple more bits of equipment to arrive before I could use my kiln – argh! – but, although I’m still rather nervous, (I know I feel the cold, but, 1000 degrees is rather hot! 😰)
I have to take the leap of faith!…my Brass doorstop needs firing!
