Bamboo Adrift...


Okay, so I know I haven't posted in forever...I haven't posted on my Masters blog either but that's because I've lost momentum...but finally I have something new. Something I want to do more of.
I've been trying to work out some way of doing my Shoal pattern without etching as it's often quite unreliable and expensive to send away. So I tried roller printing, which if I want to do outwith uni would mean an investment in a £300ish piece of machinery, however it's still cheaper and quicker. Anyway, this was the result. I'd wanted it to be quite fishy, but it looks more like bamboo leaves or little boats adrift in the sea.
The little boats obviously fit a little better with my previous work. These however were me giving myself a little time off. My masters is driving me mad because I'm not making anything but all I can think about is jewellery and making and soldering and polishing and enamelling and developing my style as a jeweller...
*sigh* I hope to get back soon. But right now the 3rd years are the only people really keeping me sane - though often driving me insane too! - but Friday is my favourite day of the week and its about to come to an end, which is really sad.
So, if I don't post again before the end of the undergrad term (mine runs right up until September if I pass this term) and you have your assessments...
Good Luck!
