a new project

this is the starting point for my new project - the beautiful marble tiled floor of bristol cathedral. so far i have printed up some synthetic satin using transfer paints to make it look like the marble and i have had some thermofax screens made showing all the cracks and marking across the marble surface and used these to print some silk and overprint on some pale batiks - lovely effects. now having a go at using these treasures for my pieces.

Happy New Year

happy new year to everyone!
december (and christmas!) has been and gone, it must have been very busy as i haven't had time to update my blog - or anything else for that matter. although we have been very slow and lazy over the holiday but perhaps that's what we needed.
as you can see the underfloor heating has gone it, its all been covered with the screed now and the plasterers have been busy getting the wall finished - everyone back tomorrow so i hope things will push on quickly.
