Today I arrived in with an armload of sticks. I set to work removing the stakes and replacing them with the more organic shapes of the sticks. Ben was definitely right about the stakes, there was even a mention of dracula which made me laugh.

I was away visiting a friend at the weekend and met her wonderful friends. We were all invited back to one house and I noticed that there was a small area on the kitchen table given over to a sacred space and it was through this that we chatted about my work. At the mention of a sacred space she set about making a CD for me on the same theme.

I have just spent the morning listening to this while starting to make the tall tree like forms from clay.

It’s great to be here in this residency space. So many people have come into the space and have given me books to read, artist names to research and confidence to keep on going. Ben was in visting last week and while he was looking at the circular form with the wooden stakes he suggested that I should use sticks instead as the stakes were very rigid and straight. I really appreciate the process of communication that happens around the work.
