With the clocks going back the working day ends in darkness. I quite like this as the sculpture takes on a different perspective under the glare of a halogen light. This piece is gradually taking shape and although the exact shape of the individual segments is not fully realised or even determined, I am certainly liking the way it is beginning to look.

I started the day wrapping bailer twine around this ring to try and mark out the pattern. After much winding and unwinding of miles of string I gave up on the string and started to draw the lines freehand. This is very tricky and took me all day. Lots of scrubbing out of lines as they failed to meet the ones coming from the other side. Most frustrating but the pattern is on the marble and I have begun to etch out the lines with the disc. I am itching to see how the pattern will look.

I have started a ring along the same lines as an earlier version but with the discs getting smaller and slighter as they rise. The evenings are drawing in and the photo taken at dusk is slightly dull as a result. I have been to London to visit my gallery which has joined forces with a gallery from South Africa called Everard Read. They are calling the new enterprise Circa. I hope this will be a happy union and generally feel very optimistic about it as Everard Read have been around for over a hundred years and have a great reputation and global reach. The date for my exhibition with them is now set for the beginning of April 2016.
