What we do besides dogs!

Here's a new thread for anyone to tell us about what they do in other bits of their lives besides being Havanese owners!! It's to stop people like me hijacking posts with taking off on related, but not related enough (!) topics and because some kind people have asked to see more or my work.

Rather than directing someone to a website, sometimes it might be nice to have an ongoing 'conversation' in thread-form instead?

Here, anyway, is a link to an open dropbox file of stuff from an exhibition I did last year at the National Theatre in London. The subject is animal camouflage, and the exhibition was called "Vanishing Act"; I'll see what I can do in the way of downloading some other stuff, too.

These are from an exhibition that combined embroidery/quilting (table runners, wall hangings etc) with ceramics. The exhibition (also at the National) was called "Migration"; many are migrating animals, and are migrating, anyway, from one medium to another. Some are just patterns taken from the fabric, through the ceramic (in the glaze) and out the other side. I'll have to post two or three to download a few of them - hope I don't get into trouble with too many photographs!!

Here are a few more; for some, as you'll see, I've imagined the little ceramic dish to be an x-ray, so you can see the bones of the seal's flipper, and the strawberry poison frog's leg and a bit of the snake:

Here's another one of the stripy bowl, close up and a couple of the 'how I do it' work-in-progress moths, and a sort of miniature mock-up we did in one of the display cases of my chaotic workroom!

Thank you SO much, Whimsy - it's a bit scary downloading such stuff in this company!! I look forward to others sharing their work, whatever it may be, it's so nice to know more about people one has got to know through our shared love of our precious dogs.

Incredible, absolutely incredible, work, Lalla. I am totally in awe. What a creative mind you have, not to mention the outstanding talent. I love it all, but especially the Migration exhibit. The concept is amazing. Love, love, love the idea of using the x-ray feature. I couldn't begin to select my favorite, as they are all so beautiful. WOW!!! I don't think I can find any more adjectives for your work. Thank you so much for sharing.

Can't wait to see what other talent lies beyond this forum. I know there must be lots of it with such a diverse group of people. Unfortunately, I don't have anything to share.

There is company far more exalted than I, AnnaM!!! I wish I could come anywhere near the skills in training and everything else to do with Havanese - I'm ok with a sewing machine and some glaze, but never cease to learn all sorts of things from people on this forum! But thank you SO much for the kind words.
