Happy New Year




Well I can't believe I have neglected my blog for so long I do apologise. I'd say it was fraught after a number of weeks off after dropping a plinth (yes again) on my foot this time really badly and the hospital could not believe it wasn't broken they even took another xray as the guy said I made such a good effort it deserved it! Anyway lets start as we mean to go on and sort out some workshops then we may just be looking at a studio sale up to 50% off some pieces so I can clear out some work to have space to create more.
