Planning :: A idealizar

After some great holidays with plenty of sunny days and some good walks around Lisbon and Sintra I am back to Scotland. Time does seem to fly when we do the things we love and it feels good to be preparing for a whole new year.

 2012 was a year full of learning and experimenting. I learned new skills which led me to work with new materials and to create new things, and I feel that my work is gaining a sense of identity.

This year I want to learn even more, challenge myself and keep on using my hands to turn my ideas into real things. I have a lot of ideas flying around my head and I can’t avoid surrounding myself with notebooks and writing utensils to capture them and to help me organize along the way.

Depois de umas férias fantásticas cheias de dias solarengos e boas caminhadas por Lisboa e por Sintra, estou de volta à Escócia. O tempo parece voar quando fazemos as coisas de que gostamos e sabe bem estar a preparar o novo ano.

2012 foi um ano cheio de aprendizagens e experimentação. Aprendi novas técnicas que me levaram a usar outros materiais para criar peças novas, e sinto que o meu trabalho começa a ter uma identidade própria.

Este ano quero aprender ainda mais, desafiar-me e continuar a usar as minhas mãos para transformar ideias em coisas reais. Tenho muitas ideias a voar na minha cabeça e não consigo evitar rodear-me de cadernos e instrumentos de escrita para as capturar e para me ajudar a organizar ao longo do caminho.
