Momentum

Working in the studio, the act of just making, is a great way to kick-start new ideas. I’ve been playing with materials and getting my tools, hands and eyes back into sync. I’ve been enjoying my time in the shed and the other day my next show came to me. It  just starts with a small idea and before you know it, it is a living breathing beast.

Here’s the result of my mind running ahead of itself. I love that feeling of certainty that comes with a new idea – the ability to ‘see’ it, the objects and the installation; and the slightly nerve-inducing commitment to making it concrete. Exciting!!

    Hi Stella
    Great to see a page of your workbook! I think that workbooks are better than the object one ends up with!, they feel like when you walk in the dark and the hand finds the thing and it just is!. .pure poetry , after this light ..is the making …another thing altogether.
    I like your writing …
    Congrats
    Elsa
