Just a note — I’ve extended free shipping on Etsy to limited edition brass pieces as well as bronze – that’s Faun, It Was Rabbit, and Crazy Hat Lady.
Some Etsy updates:
- Beau (the Boulevardier of Broken Dreams), limited edition bronze, is now available.
- I’m currently offering free shipping on all bronze pieces: Beau, The Sleep of Monsters, and A Raven for a Writing Desk.
- I’ve put up a couple of Plague Doctor Bird seconds at a discount.
Doctors Ollie and Clyde:
Here he is!
“Gary”, bronze, edition of 6, height 17 cm.
These are the new Garys at the foundry. They’ll be darker once they’re waxed, but this is basically what they look like. There’ll only be six of him, as the mould (made elsewhere) doesn’t produce great waxes, so that I have to do a fair bit of fiddly work on them. But I really wanted him to have a new lease of life and I’m happy with the result.
At the foundry:
I thought the garden might have attained its final shape, but realised that the frangipani is probably shading the mussaendas too much now that it’s all grown up. The white mussaendas seemed to be happier in the frangipani shade than the pink ones, so I’ve left them there and moved the pink ones off to the walls — and suddenly there’s space again! Hopefully they’ll stop growing straggly to reach light now and get on with flowering.
Also, I’m pretty sure our lizard is a chameleon. It looks just like this one. Haven’t seen it with its colour changed — but I guess that’s the point!
Saw the little lizard again — I guess it’s the same one. Pics are through the window. It looked so cute standing up like Godzilla.
Where could I possibly have been going dressed like this? Cosplaying a penguin? No, ice skating! It’s been a while. Took about half an hour to get my ice legs back — more or less, anyway. Some things I actually managed to do better thanks to YouTube videos. My clockwise skating was always pretty shit, but the technique pointers helped.
It’s so much fun. Gonna see if I can make the time to go once a week and get back into it. The clothes were overkill — one furry thing would have sufficed, and even that started feeling a bit warm.
