On the bench

Work in progress: enamelling plan for the work Cold Handle. © Melissa Cameron 2012

I’m working on a piece for an impending 3 person show at the Society for Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh, PA in the USA. The show opens in November, so this will be the last work I make before I send them all off at the end of the month.

It’s very rare that I break out the coloured pencils to settle on the colours for a work. It was a lot more common when I was an interior designer, though back then there was generally far less subtlety in the palette… The ability to mix my own pigments is just another reason to love this job.
