So here's what Poppy made for me. Inspired by one of the tunes I sent to her 'Werewolf' by Cat Power.  Turned out that it was as much a significant piece of music for Poppy as it is for me.


It was a fairly long time ago that I was sat down working on the Contemporary Jewellery Exchange piece for Poppy Porter.  This is somewhat back-to-front, however, it was always my intention to document the working out process as it felt very different to how I normally might have worked.  I recall mentioning to Poppy how I felt like I was making the piece blind.  I was perhaps just as surprised by the piece as Poppy was when she received it in the post.


This piece, entitled 'Muse, Bass Strings and Synthesia' is the long awaited Contemporary Jewellery Exchange piece which winged its way to Poppy Porter about a month back.


So in my last post, I updated you on what Poppy posted to me.  Here's what I sent to Poppy in my Creative Space Exchange package.

My parcel contained:
1. A complication CD of Studio Sounds, for audio inspiration.
2. A very much loved Sketchbook.
3. A box of (mostly failed) samples/material trails.
and a business card...

I'm really curious as to how she'll interpret what I've sent to her.


A week or so back (yes this post is a little belated) I received a package from Poppy Porter, my Contemporary Jewellery Exchange partner.  After discussing our plans on how to approach this project we decided on a studio swap of sorts: sending one another three items which would give the other person some insight into their practice.
Poppy's package contained the original strings from her Bass; some drawings from a muse track (Poppy has Synesthesia); and some Muse tracks (her favourite band and the reason she started to play Bass), all contained within a lovely little box which was originally for a Bass pedal.
