My solo exhibition 'Etherial Threads' opens in three days and I am currently in a flurry of last second preparation. There are still a few freestanding sculptures to finish, the resin work must be sanded and polished and I need to photograph and catalogue all the new pieces. I always get a little buzz of excitement before I set up a new show. It is the time when all the work comes together and is presented beautifully. I get to see all my efforts up on a wall in a gallery rather than just a stack leaning against the wall in the studio.

I set up the show tomorrow and then I am giving myself a day off before the opening night on Thursday! here is a sneak peek at the new resin work and some small embroidered bowls I have been working on.
