Really excited about new products at work 😁 I want to be producing as much as I can with my own artwork, so that I can focus on that, and provide unique products that you can't find anywhere else! So I have had some standing table lamps printed to see how people respond to them. And also I have started experimenting with something I've wanted to do for ages.....my own jewellery line. I started out making jewellery years ago as a sideline when I was working elsewhere. Now I love being an artist producing my own artwork.....so it makes sense to combine the two! Early stages with this at the moment as I learn the best process to produce the quality finish I want 😊 #patternsoflight#scottishartist#scottishart#workingstudio#usingoldskills#newlines#newproducts#newseason#usingmyartwork#experimenting#moretocone
I was inspired to post this by seeing an image by @lisa_marie_selig the other day. One of the best days of photography I’ve had was a trip to Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County back in 2014. It turns out I was going to be fired from a job the next day, although I didn’t know it. This image was difficult to get. It was very breezy, but the image of the grass against the fence was too enticing to pass up. I was shooting a Fuji Xt-1 with a manual focus C/Y Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 lens, so there was no auto focus. One of my favorite lenses ever. Just caught a break.
Spent the afternoon switching hanging snowflakes for multicoloured honeycomb pom poms on the shop ceiling, ordering new mugs, coasters and chopping boards, and printing new cards....and putting together a framed print of the new Sea Urchin design! I won't be at work until next week now, as we're going away for a couple of nights at the end of the week. But will be back in the shop next week working, and while I'm there the door will be open if you're passing! I'm hoping a delivery or two will arrive with new exciting prototypes to show you....and also some aluminium sheets that I've got plans for....won't say more now incase the experiment doesn't work 😉 #patternsoflight#feelinginspired#excitingplans#scottishartist#scottishart#workingstudio#giftshop#gallery#iv54#nc500#newseasoncoming#newdesigns#newproducts
