What an inspiration! My early year torpor has dropped away and I am impatient to get cracking on making things again!
With the Days on the brain and a bit of time on my hands, I decided to cut a new magnet. After sketching out an idea, I started cutting, already impatient to finish, convinced that my homage to Lucienne Day’s fabric designs was going to be quite lovely.
I eventually finished it, and……well, it’s certainly not lovely. I don’t think I’d show it to Mrs Day if she asked. Made with bronze-coloured paper pasted to magnetic sheet, cut with my NT cutter.To be fair, it’s not totally hideous, just pretty wierd. It reminds me of the kind of 60’s metalwork often to be found taking up an entire wall of a suburban theatre. Ah well, John Denver tells it like it is: “Some Days are diamonds, some days are stones”.
