This week has flown by. John over at Imagine gallery mentioned that he has invited me to contribute some work to his 'Alice' exhibition. So I started on Monday with throwing bowls. Tuesday they were slipped and Wednesday they were turned. So Thursday they were ready for decorating.
In the meantime I got a copy of Alice from Amazon (cost 1p plus postage!) I don't think I've actually read the book since I was a child. The new copy I've bought seems to have the same illustrations I remember from childhood by John Tenniel. Also I've had to work on drawings, something I enjoy doing. The first two bowls I've pictured here. They are very straight forward to get me into thinking about the theme.
Then this morning as I ran around the shops in Reigate I noticed this display in the optician's window. I found it quite amusing. Kitty Shepherd posted some window displays on her blog. Tim Burton's film has been in the news all week so it's 'Alice' all round.
