Paul Smith exhibition

Paul Smith exhibition

I recently went to the Paul Smith exhibition over at the Lighthouse. It’s a great insight into his inspirations, including his early days and some idea of the process from initial ideas to his fashion shows.

My first attempts

I’ve just started a course in ceramics at the Fireworks Studio in Glasgow. its a great class aimed at beginners and I’m still hard at work on doing the very basic such as centering the clay and simple throwing techniques. I’m finding it quite difficult to do, I started of quite well, then after an hour or so just lost the knack of it. The same thing happened on the second class – hubris? I’m going to keep at it and see if I can make some progress, so far its hard work! The lessons are super friendly though and top marks for the tutor.

Scottish National Portrait Gallery - Edinburgh

From a trip to check out the BP Portrait award over at the National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh and caught this small exhibition of portrait sculpture. I ran out of space on my page and added the little figure on the swing later.
