Its less than ten days until the Open Studio event starts and then straight after I will be packing up to go to the Contemporary Craft Fair at Bovey Tracey.....I dont know where the year has gone ....I seem to have been working flat out and I still dont have enough stock to do this fair....Hmmm.....I do have something of a butterfly mind though....I often find myself full of resolve to tackle a particular commission or order and as soon as I cross the threshold of my workshop I get mysteriously misled....Had hoped to finish most of the commissions I have at the moment this week but have made a large gardener... just found the perfect piece of wood for the base and it wouldnt wait.... a small flotilla, several green bird toys and yesterday as well as working on a large single boat...I found the perfect wood to make a row of swimmers.....Wish I could be more organised but after twenty five years of this lark I guess I have to start accepting the way I work.facebook Jane Ryan Opi

  2. OMGoodness I am completely in love with your work. I've just spent half an hour (I clearly DON'T have!)looking through your photos. Particularly like the ones where you can see work in progress.
    I work with wood too - but in a much simpler way!
    Off to bookmark your blog and find a special occasion I can justify a bit of your work for....fee x (chipper nelly)
