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.
