In the top left is an orange shard supported by a blue french brace with numbered parts and the words “french brace” and arrows saying front view and back view and notes on how to screw it together. In the top right is an orange shard sculpture with a blue rectangular base and the parts labelled as before, and the words “fill inside with weights”. At the bottom is an orange shard sculpture with a lilac and yellow base and green weights on top, and the parts labelled as before.

hold up

yellow handwriting on a pink background reads I’ve not made any big boy sculptures in ages, just small ones But I miss making things that are bigger than me, want to make an 8ft shard again, take my time over it Get a sheet of MDF, let’s say 12mm thick, and choose a shard, maybe go double-sided, not done one of those on a big scale before. draw it out. Jig saw the outline. Sand the edges. paint it with emulsion, one side at a time, slowly. paint the edges. sand back any lumps. do another coat. wait for it to dry. paint the patterns. paint the edges bright. decide on how it’s going to stand ...

forager

A drawing of a ceramic shard on an orange background. Following the shape of the loose floral pattern are hand-drawn letters in blue saying: I don’t have a clue what I’m doing. I’ve sort of got stuck in a rut of making the same thing over and over and I kind of feel like I’ve got to keep making the same stuff and it can only be part of my practice, be art if it’s in the same vein. And I love making that work, can’t stop, won’t stop doing that. But there’s other stuff I want to draw too but it sort of feels too random like people are going to wonder what the Fuck I’m doing,(...too long for ID)

Blue background with three shards of pottery and a handwritten text about my family’s history of working in the potteries. (I can’t type it all out because of the max character limit)

Maybe I’m just romantic

A gold drawing of a sieve on a pink background. Written in the sieve are the words too long for the character count. The first curved around the rim of the sieve and the base talks about panning for gold in a non literal sense. The second set in the side of the sieve talks about a tool used in the book molloy for reaching things under fences.

overthinking

hiraeth

Teal geometric pattern on a cream background. Within the pattern are cut out letters following the lines of the pattern down the page reading “convince me that spending £27,000 on an art degree was a good idea” and a smaller section has cut out letters within a circle saying “(I’ll never earn enough to pay it back anyway)”
