Keeping warm in the Studio: New Works

Yes it is cold in my studio, no heating, open double doors and the rain lashing down, day on day on day.  So to counteract that there is no better way way than to keep on making things.
Of course the West Lavington Show in June has been focusing my attention and another instrument has been, carved burnt and strung, oh and tuned.  At the moment it is called "The Wedge" if anyone has any other names please add to the comment list below and if something better comes up I will change it!

Also I have made another in the Colour Blind Test series, this I feel is an ongoing venture, as I am enthralled by the three dimensionalness of the way the light comes through the holes and almost creates a sphere.

And a quicky for the Art on the Block auction for the Musgrove Hospital a small ear harp with plectrum.

The next piece for the West Lavington Show is now complete, again with a haiku by Roselle Angwin, this piece uses nylon strings and the curved arm can be listened to, to hear the sound of the strings, I am hoping that the wind will also play these strings.
The next of this series is already underway.

 Here is the latest piece for the West Lavington summer show.  The Gayageum is a South Korean instrument, one that I had the pleasure to play at I-Park last year when the Korean artist Jayoung Chung let me play hers.  It is a mighty fine instrument and this is more my take on it other than slavishly copying one.
I asked Roselle Angwin if she would write some haiku for me, that may be pertinant to the instrument and the fact that these would be placed outside and possibly be played by the wind as well as humans.
She responded magnificently and the words on this one is hers, please visit her blog: for further information on her.
I will be playing these instruments alongside pupils from local schools during the exhibitions that runs from 4th june to the 22nd june.
More instruments to come.
