Hey kids, no time for a proper post tonight, we’ve had a very tiring weekend (too old to be partying on both Friday AND Saturday nights anymore) so an early night is the only thing to fix that.
But in case it’s a few more days before I get back on the blog-o-tron, here’s some photos from last week’s work to keep you interested and clicking back for more!

First up, Dani has been elbow deep in porcelain, getting to work on the 120+ bowls she is making for the NGV.

… these aren’t the most glamorous photos, but the sun really loves those facets so I thought I’d put them up.

These ones are fresh out of the molds, still soft and easily damaged, so they have their own shelves now.

I’ve been filming her as she makes them, so keep an eye out for another nice floaty musical video when she is done.

Secondly, I also managed to start another pair of prototype shoes last week. I was aiming to have them done by tonight (haha, as if) but so far all I’ve done is the sketch > pattern > test fit process.

initial sketch

taped up last + heel roughed in

patterns on some leather… with skiving allowance for the first time in ages.

…first pullover, with rolled edges. Only making one for a test fit.

With heel and an indication of the rand i’m thinking of attaching. Not sure yet if there’ll be buckles or any other detailing. You can’t see from the photos, but there is a zip on the inside ankle area.

Thats all for now, I’ll be back later in the week with some more detail shots of (hopefully) a completed pair of booooooots. It’s Dani’s birthday next weekend, so we’ll be offline a little whilst we ditch the computers for a few days. We’ll be at the DI$COUNT exhibition on Friday though, so if you see us, say hi!
