Ok confession time, I have been lax, very lax. the spring has gone, summer and autumn too. I have produced a mountain of work both in America and Germany, Started a new band and made new instruments, had three exhibitions. But nothing on my blog at all, so in some attempt to catch up I will post some images and a little text.
First in Connecticut at I-Park I met a 5' 8" sloughed snakeskin in the woods as I repaired on of my pieces
then I created these two sound funeral bird boxes, where the ashes of a loved one can be placed in an urn within a sculpture that houses birds.
I had an exhibition at Yale about sound
I then went to Darmstadt in Germany as part of an 'Art and Transformation' Symposium for three weeks with a number of other fantastic artists. I produced 19 sculptures from Stumps with strings whereby the listener puts their ear to the root of the tree
to stumps that one just puts ones ear onto
zen type strings with stone bridges
hanging ear harps
I had an exhibition at the Brewhouse for SAW with Louise Baker and Deborah Westmancoat
I carved a rail on a bridge as a memorial
I took the Sound Pavilion down in Taunton and was left with 'Ghost of Sound"
I made some more Amulets from steel, bronze and glass
New instrument made for my new band called SWINE with Tim Hill, Farmer Glitch, Cliff Stapleton, and Matt Saunders
