I always like having basic themes to work to - usually ideas or images of things that wont leave my mind. For the past year I have had Pods and Houses running around inside..
Pods kind of goes with my LOVE for boxes, containers, tins, etc. I love the idea of something enclosed with a peek of the "surprise" inside. I also love working from Nature. I have been collecting all kinds of pods from nature and eventually want to make a series of sculptures based on the "pod".
The "house" theme is already in practise. Not sure why the "House" keeps coming back to me. We are trying to sell our apartment in the hope of finding our dream home. Im in the middle of making something now (also a little connected to pods) and have other ideas.
So watch this space...

    When I was a kid I wanted to be a snail to carry my house on my back so I never had to MOVE! which we did from Florida to California! What a change that was!
    Your photo made me think if an oak gaul which is puffy like styrofoam and in the middle is a tiny wasp. Next time I go to our "ranch" I' photograph one for you.
