New Project.

 Having completed the work that I called 'Hands at Play', I have moved on to the next project. It's based on water, reeds and dried mud, reflecting the title of the next exhibition to be held at the Embroiderers Guild here in Melbourne. Above are some of my photographs of dried and cracked mud.
Here I've carved the outlines of the cracked mud, and have begun to carve away the excess rubber, quite a time consuming task I suspect ! I wanted to try a stamped image from this small portion of the carving, just to see that it looks O.K. A bit too similar to crazy paving I think, so I'll add a few more 'cracks' as I go along. I have drawn in a few with ink just to see what needs to be done.
