Have you had one of those days?

You know.

They start at 6.00, though you've been awake since 4.30 - thinking about mould designs. At six you work out how you want the mould to look, and by 6.45 have designed it. Then the modelling software wont't load it properly into th...

Been a mad rush to get to the end of the two college projects, but looking back I seem to have achieved quite a lot. 3 x Tea Light designs, a nice Buddha face and Emoji desk tidies. Of course, I have no idea whether any of these will sell. But, really, right now, my go...

Been working on making moulds and casting pieces over the last few weeks. Particularly using 3D printing to produce the forms I use to make the moulds. The level of control, and the ability to change one aspect at a time to improve the final result being very appealing...

Course work for professional development is a big necessary evil. I recognise that I need to have a professional plan, but equally I mainly learn by doing, and by handling what goes wrong when it happens. Having got to this point in my career, where I am in effect reti...
