The cross mountains block was for my father in law to be used this weekend as a focal point for a larger group of Christian mediators. Graham wanted it to be simple and to use some recycled materials (wood and brass).

I started the two large lamps by dismantling all the unnecessary bits and gluing on a threaded brass section that will be used to bolt the lamp to its stand.

Fiona and I are off to the opening of a printmakers exhibition this evening. We don't have any work in it but a few of our friends do - always good to support artist friends.
