The last six months have had me surrounded by nappies, Nuby rings and the sound of baby Mozart rather than the usual hum of the welder the steady drifty tones of Radio 4. The birth of my daughter has introduced a wonderful dimension to my life and has created a natural pause. This has allowed me to reflect on what I have achieved and have a think about which new strands of work I would like to investigate.
In between attempting to fathom how mushed a carrot needs to be, a wonderful new book arrived through the post entitled 'Encore! The New Artisans' by Olivier Dupon. It is a beautiful publication profiling makers, their inspiration and working environments. I happen to be featured in the book which I am really excited about!
