On Monday, a rainy bank holiday, Chris and I ventured out to The Harley Gallery, where we saw the exhibition, SMILE, which had lots of quirky craft pieces on show http://www.harleygallery.co.uk/ - quirky really appeals to Chris. I loved the clever automata by Robert Race, constructed from driftwood and using stones as the balance weights. Of course, like most people, I couldn't resist turning the handle and watching the figures move.
I also found a vision of myself in a few years, possibly having come into some money and living in a larger house in the country. This was 'Flo' by Craig Mitchell, designed as a vase, but without the flowers in the exhibition, which I felt was unfortunate, because the flowers demonstrated why she had the slightly odd hugging posture. There is something typically British about the stoicism on Flo's face, with her headscarf, her apron over her coat and her green wellies. On second thoughts, I'm not sure I'll be embracing a headscarf any time soon!
