In have turned my attention from huge sculptures for the landscape at Heligan to smaller more intimate works. I have to try to shed the disappointment of them deciding against the exhibition and work on, in a positive frame of mind. This new series will enable me to try out some ideas for carvings which might well work nicely on a larger scale at a later date. Everything fell out of the sky today. Hail and snow followed by fierce winds that made me look nervously behind me to the straw bale building as if I might see bales fly past in the gale. I made good progress with the ring and begin to think about different ways that they could configure. I like the form, it seems like a good canvas to work on.
