August: a short series of photos

These are some of the things I've been up to this summer.

I painted this espresso set as a wedding present for a friend.

Another series of houses, made from bamboo skewers
(split into thin pieces), cardboard, japanese paper.

 More shrink plastic necklaces

And an embroidery hoop.

Series of Houses

A little while ago, I discovered the work of Mara Skujeniece and her "Barns" series.
I decided I wanted to make a series of houses of my own,
but on a smaller scale, and using a sort of New England colour palette.

Bike Parts and Sketches Necklaces

I made these necklaces using white shrink plastic and sharpies.
The first two are a collection of bike parts: wheels, gears and pedals.
And the third necklace is a series of pendants inspired by the sort of sketches
I used to do in the margins of my notes when
I was in school or while chatting on the phone.
