Rose gum and triangles

Don’t you feel that there are some weeks that control you rather than the other way around? If that does not happen to you I am happy for you. This week has been another of those 'mosaic' weeks – lots of bits and pieces that make up life. We have been preparing to catch up with a friend in Singapore, maintaining the house and veggie garden, doing our policy research work, making a contribution to our community and yes fitting in some art practice.

I have managed to progress the boat hull piece for the September vessel exhibition. The 200mm square rose gum block proved a bit of a challenge for the hand saw but in the end the wedge shape and beautiful red colour was worth it. The terracotta hull looks good on the wedge.

But I must say I am really excited with my small 'triangle bowl'. It is made up of six triangles riveted together – gives an edgy feel but sits just like a smooth cool orb in the palm of your hand.
