Dear All, This blog is used by me to detail the finer points behind how and why I create work. It is for those of you who want to dive deeper. I hope you enjoy the swim.

 

I’ve just finished Edmund de Waal’s “Hare with the Amber Eyes’. His sensitivity  makes me want to extend my drawings of Russian interiors to Japanese interiors. Japonismes, Bagatelles, trinkets, victrines…

 

 

This netsuke was made in the 18th Century by a man called Soko. For me netsuke can look slightly ugly, but De Wall’s show such craftsmanship and delicacy. This skull looks extremely lifelike.
