concrete and conversations

I have had an enjoyable conversation with Hannah Longmuir as part of a blog that Cameo Curio are doing about creativity, 'Month of marks' for May see , a really interesting collection of interviews, thoughts and comments on all aspects of creativity .
I am also in the middle of making a large concrete piece for 3 Harbours Festival, , subtitled , 'art in unusual places' , i am making work for both within the Cockenzie Power station and also on a 'plinth' in the harbour at Cockenzie.

This work has been started as part of my time at Sunderland University Glass and Ceramics Dept during my AA2A( Artists Access to Art Colleges) residency. It is exciting and slightly daunting to make such a big piece and challenging me to work in another medium to clay. I am using  a concrete which I am trying to make as low impact on environment as possible, using limecrete and recycled aggretages, with a base of recycled polystyrene. lots more to do on it, updates to follow.
