My Unsung Tools

I'm ridiculously reluctant to throw away this scruffy piece of paper - it has served me well. It's my marking out sheet for marking where drill holes go. It's had tea spilled on it, got doodles and tons of wear and tear but it's a faithful friend. Underneath is a new one I made but I don't love it like the old one. Maybe I shall keep it and one day make a collage that is a hommage to much used bits of paper.
I did love geometry when I was at school but I never thought I would use it so much on a daily basis.

Here are some more old friends, I've been through quite a few of these and I'm also reluctant to admit when a block is actually too chewed up to be a good prop and base anymore. I wonder how many holes I've drilled?.......
Was there a tiny bit more daylight today? (and a whopping 1 degree of temperature!) I find I'll have just got in full swing in the studio of an afternoon and find there's only half an hour of daylight left. I wish I could photoshop the sky like I do these photos and just lift the gloom out and brighten it all up.

  1. Wow!
    I just found your blog after Googling "teacup Chandeliers" I've wanted to make one for so long and have finally decided to dip my toes into the water by starting with a teacup lamp...
    I LOVE the scruffy bit of paper! It has so much story soaked up in all it's little fibres, I think the holey bits of wood will make a perfect frame for when you make your paper college :)
