Some pics from my March trip to Iceland, I'm now back in my studio rejuvenated by the extraordinary landscape
Now that I have my newly acquired welding skills and equipment I'm busy working on a new series of TIG welded sheet steel sculptures. I'm going to try them in glossy Powder Coated finishes first.
Took Noisy Table up to Canary Wharf for the Level39 Tech Accelerator Xmas do. Had lots of fun trying out the various other tech/art installations and encountered a new Noisy Table glitch - beats from the PA triggering the table making the graphics and sounds go crazy in time with the music, eventually the table packed in and refused to play.
Got the trees planted on the 6th December. Thank you to everyone who came out to help and provided tea. Just need to wait a few years for the installation to settle in and take its place in the community (and keep an eye on the trees to see how they get on).
Getting the brass tree labels ready for Saturday tree planting
The landscape artwork at Swale Park in Whitstable is almost complete. All that’s left to do is plant the 13 apple trees in the pits which have already been dug out and filled with a mix of soil and manure.
We will be planting the trees on Saturday 6th December from 12 noon onwards. Residents are invited to come along – if you would like to help, please wear wellies or other suitable footwear, and if possible, bring a spade! If you don’t want to help plant the trees, please come along to watch and chat to us, have a drink and a snack and celebrate the completion of the project.
Simon Reed from Rough Old Wife Cider (a local cider producer) will also be on hand and will talk about his company’s work at and bring along some samples to taste. Rough Old Wife will be looking after the trees in the future, and in return will take any apples that the residents do not pick and use them for cider production.
