The one lamp has come out really well. Still not finished as I want to polish it. But the sanding is absolutely done and it is feeling smooth and beautiful. To reduce the amounts of rubbish (wasted cement) I have crushed and added some of the used cement to the fresh mix. Process through images … Continue reading Cilinder cement lamp
I think I have finally worked out how am I working this thing out. I began to work under the concept of Sustainability. I have narrowed down a lot. I want my work to reflect a Re-Use, Reduce, Re-cycle principle (part of being sustainable). I kept thinking that I wanted my objects to look professional, … Continue reading Degree plan
Coming back from the holidays was a shock. I came back to find that the cement had cracked (due to contracting) and it had al so pulled the glass with it. I liked how the last glass tiles came out. I do think they are really thick, but I like the fact they are quite … Continue reading Recycling Recycled
Yesterday was an odd one. After going in the morning to find that my glass had done nothing in the kiln for about 8 hours, I felt pretty low. Even more so, considering that I am having my formative assessment today! Considering it is probably the first time I didn’t leave things until last minute, … Continue reading Break through
As well as working on the designs with glass, I have been thinking about other processes I could use to reduce the quantity of energy used and maybe make it so I could re-create it after I have left University. So I thought about making paper recycled from the bits leftover from what I have … Continue reading Paper Shade, Light forms.
It has been a while since my last post. Hopefully Ill get it all back. Third year has arrived (a lot quicker than expected). Stressful since day 1 (and I’ve been told that I’m good at keeping calm). We started working on ideas since the beginning. I sort of knew what I wanted to do … Continue reading Third year projects. Material Research

Esposizione Internazionale d’Arte The Biennale has begun! Got my ticket last week and went into the Giardini venue. Only saw … Continue reading Biennale update.
Here are some more images from the gallery. Mostly what was on the second floor. ………………………………………………… Work by Oliver Czarnetta Looked like several layer of resin, with things trapped in between. Work by Pilar Cavestany Getting good close up photos of her work was quite difficult. It was so bright that the windows reflected … Continue reading Palazo Nani (pt 2)
This week we were meant to have started work on the Mosaic. Molly and I went together on Tuesday, to find a sign on the door saying the lecturer would be absent Tuesday and Wednesday. We thought to go back on Thursday and make a start. We get to the uni at about 10 am … Continue reading Palazzo Nani (pt 1)
I posted some videos I had made. Tried to download them of my YouTube account but they kept being rejected. So I opened a Tumblr account and downloaded them there. Then I realized that unless you have a Tumblr account, you won’t be able to see the videos. Shame! I have now downloaded my videos … Continue reading The Venice I see
