The Rubber Arrives!

Firstly, my thanks to all at Broomhill and the judging panel for selecting my piece to be included in the work to be displayed in 2011.

I think for now the final piece should not be revealed in sketches or as a marquette, as this may detract from the finished piece. So for now here is a picture of the outside of my workshop where there has just been delivered, half a tonne of rubber off cuts from Lianne and Scott at Rubber Manufacturing Services up in Cheshire.

I’ll post photos as I go along so you can watch the form evolve and develop. I have never used this material before and I am now wondering how to work with it!

I’ll post the problems as they arise and maybe you can help me solve them….
