The sandblasting and stitching are developing in tandem to each other, I have also been taken by the effect of the sandblasting on the bubble wrap used to protect the inside of a vase, the delicate lace effect can be seen at the bottom the second picture, I have started to stitch this onto tissue-paper. To complete the mixture of processes I am knitting a variety of textures with a selection of yarns, I am enjoying this mixture and the fun of not knowing where it will end.

January is always a time of reflection for me. Reviewing the year gone and looking towards the work to come. I have been considering the importance of textures, touch and materials in my work. I really enjoyed collaborating with the amazing ceramicist Sara Parsons and was keen to continue. Here are the photos of work so far.
