Footworn and hollowed and thin,
Here was the former door
Where the dead feet walked in.
She sat here in her chair,
Smiling into the fire;
He who played stood there,
Bowing it higher and higher.
Childlike, I danced in a dream;
Blessings emblazoned that day;
Everything glowed with a gleam;
Yet we were looking away!
The Self Unseeing Thomas Hardy
Had a great couple of days up in Kilmartin Glen, Argyll last week. This has to be my favourite place and museum in Scotland. Awesome 5000 year old artworks in stone. Was there to drop off some new work in the museum gallery. If you are ever in that area please take some time out there. www.kilmartin.org
Great day with the girls ... making a nailed willow chair from scratch. Gail prototyped this chair on Friday afternoon and led the course for us the next day. Seamless !!!!!! They all fitted in or on the transport media home as well. Shave horses this weekend .. all go at The Big Tree Society Courses are just about full for the year. If you like you can get your name down on a cancellation list if you would like to attend this year.
Some new beech bark carvings form the riverside beech that came down in the November storms. It looks like ceramic or stone sometimes. See more at Buy Design Gallery
