Without this amazing proofreader Rubrica Proofreading, I could not finish writing 1000 words essay on my ‘Journey to Silver’ for Goldsmiths’ Company exhibition in 2015. He kept my style of writing but corrected any mistakes. I can recommend to anyone!!

The best educational DVD ever! We have been obsessively watching this box set ‘HANDS’, consists of 14 discs with 37 documentaries which captured most incredible makers in traditional crafts in 1980s in Ireland. I LOVE CRAFTS.

I just visited Great Northern Craft Fair 2014 in Manchester (just finished, sorry!). It worth spending good three hours at the preview! They had curated section called Ornament, which my biggest steel work was on display. Hand-curved woodblock by Claire Florey-Hitchcox in new graduation section caught my eyes. I also loved Caroline Broadhead’s bead work, just stunning.

This August, I made new batch of small wall hanging series called CELL. Now they are available at Velvet da Vinch in San Francisco, Contemporary Applied Arts in London, Bluecoat Display Centre in Liverpool, Harley Gallery in Nottinghamshire, and of course my principal dealer Adrian Sassoon. This picture shows just after sand blasting before wax coating process, so the colour is different.

I just received latest 250th anniversary CRAFTS magazine. I am so excited to see my drawing on the front cover which I doodled in a cafe in Tokyo after failing my MA sculpture entrance exam in 1997. Soon after this, I popped in British Council in a search of my next step and saw CRAFTS magazine, which made me visit the UK first time… Amazing. I can not thank enough for the magazine and their support.
