I’ve been working on another couple of posts about blogging for the Artists Online Series and hope to get them posted in the next day or two. However, I’m on a deadline this week so I thought I’d just post a quick image to tide you over. I need to spend the evening in the studio – I’m making some jewellery for my brother’s wedding at the weekend, it seems to be coming up alarmingly fast.

I adore mortar and pestles (although I can never remember which is which) and often use them in my work; I’ve done various pieces where grinding things down was an integral part of the process. This one was shot in the window of the studio I rented before I decided that I worked better from home. I love the grey tones in this shot – I haven’t done anything to it, it’s just how the light was that day.

OK, enough talk of studios, it’s way past time for me to get into mine!

I am an artist & purveyor of obsessive projects based in Hebden Bridge, England. My work involves the accretion of large numbers of small objects - pins in fabric, knots in string or hundreds of envelopes - to make sculptures that deal with fragility, loss, repetition, obsession and time.
