The Heat Exchange II show has just opened in Scotland over the weekend, where it will stay until the end of February 2016. A slew of associated events are scheduled to coincide, including a symposium the weekend of the 19th of Feb (**hint hint**, if you’re in the area!) Art Jewelry Forum have just last week published part three of my five-part series of Material Concerns, wherein I talk about the wall of enamels on display in the Künstlerwerkstätten (artists’ workshops) in Erfurt in Germany.  How are these connected, I hear you ponder aloud…? Well, the Künstlerwerkstätten is where I hung out with a bunch of the other Heat Exchange participants last year for a couple of weeks, as together we made, or at least trialed, enamel pieces for this touring exhibition.

In the end I made a new series of works earlier this year to send to Europe for the HE adventure, but a selection of the works I made in Erfurt, entitled Jewel for a Wall are currently in Bright! at Rose Turk-o in Richmond.
