Altered Book No.3 July & Aug 2008

Just coming to the end of my pages for Book No.3 - I've done less pages this time as I've been busy with shows the past couple of months. The pages I have worked on are quite involved in this book as I spent time with fellow altered book artist Sue Brown in her fabulous Cheltenham studio which I always find very inspiring.

Some of the elements used on these pages are taken from a Lisa Larson ceramic tile which I love.
I'm always on the look out for her pieces particularly the bird tiles and stripey cats!

My latest commission had been for a metalwork fire engine for a guy who has recently retired from the Fire Brigade locally. The design needed to be fairly simple but I wanted the style to be in keeping with my work. The main part of the piece is copper with brass highlights. The wheels have been coloured to blacken and create a contrast.
