Monday Morning...

At the crack of dawn(well...8.30ish), both myself and my new flatmate Nicola Reed(also a fellow new 3rd year jeweller-see links) will be embarking on a slight, but also tiring trek back to Uni, where all the fun stuff will start back over again!

Safe to say we are both panicking tremendously over the unfinished summer projects we both have...let's hope we can do it in the remaining 4 days, minus of course the remaining few nights out in freshers week..!

So I am hoping to start posting a few more interesting blogs once I get back into the swing of things. Good thing is we have a kettle in the studio! "Hurrah!" Soo lots of cuppas to keep us going!

Till later x

Affected lines...

(layer images on tracing paper...)

Okay, project...a week on Monday to go...really need to get a move on! (And I think I'm not alone in the last minute panic amongst my class!)

Being on the water is my thing, I love the feeling of sitting on the bow, with my legs dangling overboard, powering through the water,disrupting the natural rhythm. So I thought it only right to study for the pre-named 'Awakening the Senses' sketchbook (our task for this summer), was the thing that makes me feel most alive!
I have gathered some images of masts, stays, spreaders and general boaty'ness! I love the curved lines, lines that follow on from each other...almost liquid lines!

So at the moment I am studying line, and then affecting it by extending from the original projection and pushing it out so all the lines eventually connect, creating forms and structure, whether the lines be curved, straight or angled.

The natural projection of the free flowing curved 'stream' lines, featured in the design of water vessels I hope will help me design a piece or pieces of tablewear, that will sit comfortably, and be pleasing to the eye, because of the natural line progression....well thats the idea anyway!

Now to put my ideas onto paper...easier said than done!

Till much much later...x
