I’d been working on something different for this year’s Cambridge Open Studios at Burwash Manor to show alongside my main work – paintings that you can take with you everywhere you go.
It’s one of the things I’m most gutted about not being able to get ‘out there’ in person this July as they’ve been a while in development and I’m really pleased with the results. These delicate but quite robust little necklaces are made with my signature material, emulsion paint, trapped inside glass globes.
The process of making them (researching and testing what would work well, controlling materials while embracing their nature and some chaos with it, repetition…) learning some new techniques, and loving the outcome has been hugely enjoyable.
I hope that I’ll still find ways to share them and that they prove popular enough for me to make more!
