Experimentation with shadows....cut paper and plastic attached to my window casting shadow on the curtain. It's not final design work but it's lovely because it keeps surprising me...I only get the sun late afternoon so I'll be working and suddenly Bam! I'll realise I'm surrounded by shadow of light!

I've been searching the charity shops for a teapot i'd love and this morning i found it! Joy :) Apparantly it's a Sadler teapot and apparantly this is good. I didn't know about Sadler teapots. The lady in the shop asked if I collected them and when I said no she said she expected the teapot back in a couple months when I get bored of it. This won't happen..I love my new teapot and shall use it to serve tea and glee.

My work - print on paper, only visible as shadow when light shines through
Min Nyoung Seo's work - Craft recycling cork, cardboard and carrier bags
Clover Robin's work - layered ghostly photography for wallpaper
I think the show went well :) I had some positive feedback, which is lovely and encouraging to hear. Also, a shove to get industry contacts...I know I should...but it's very daunting!

I was recommended to research the Institut du Monde Arabe because of its use of shadow and light. I find it was designed by Jean Nouvel, whose shadow kitchen cupboards I like so much!
