Working through and possibly out of a global pandemic, I truly lost the motivation to make, not knowing what form would be remotely interesting. I felt literally flat, with socialising limited at best. Travel plans cancelled or restricted and hours and hours on zoom.

I began to think about the origins of metal and paint. Without the metal lead, we would not have Lead White. BINGO I don’t need a form. So I cast directly into antique Italian/ French gilded frames and I chuck in a few plastic ones for a healthy mix!
