'Almost Caught in the Act'

So here is some work I made a while back and exhibited during Schmuck week in Munich this year, and then also alongside some of my other pieces at 'WOOD' at Velvet da Vinci earlier this year... Think I was hoping to get some better pics of these pieces before uploading, but I have come to learn that there is a certain logic behind the well known phrase "no time like the present".  



'Naughty Ox', 2012


This brooch has been assembled out of small wooden toy parts, matches, paper and string, and looks to create the impression that this piece is soon to be set alight.
'Bonfire', 2012

A roughly made brooch made from small bits of burnable material hung on a wonky key fob.
'Best Bits',  2012


This brooch consists of small burnable items, including a birthday cake candle, bound together with string and stacked on top of each other, conjuring the idea that they are ready for burning.
'Stacked-Wonkey', 2012

'Almost caught in the act' is a hoard of constructed artefacts discovered wedged in the gap between bunk-bed and wardrobe. The inexplicable disappearance of household items is no longer a mystery; their intended purpose barely disguised.is a hoard of constructed artefacts discovered wedged in the gap between bunk-bed and wardrobe.

Haven't quite worked out the rules yet... Is this cheating I wonder?

On the Make #2


Love this colour.  Couldn't resist doing something with this chewing gum.  (My husband was less than impressed though, when he went to look for it later in the day).

On the Make


I've been inspired by a friend of mine who blogged a tune a day, for a month, a while back.  'On the Make' is creative throwing down of the gauntlet; I plan to make something (out of what's to hand) and share this everyday.  

I'm not sure where this excursion will take me, but I'm sure I'll learn a thing or two along the way.
