Welcome to my art blog from Tasmania, Australia. I post a little on my various art projects while also working in plant genetics. For more, please try the links to my various art pages or email me at email@example.com. Thank you for visiting!
Here's something new and feminine (but very high-tech) for this Saturday's market - flower pendants! I made them using a strange amalgamation of old and new technologies. The flower images are sun prints of flowers from our garden. I arranged the flowers on photo-sensitive paper and exposed the paper to the sun for a couple of minutes, scanned the resulting images into the PC and re-sized them. My friend glass artist extraordinaire Merinda Young printed them onto ceramic decal paper for me (in exchange for a Vegemite scroll - thanks Merinda!), and I fired them onto opaque art glass. The iron in the ink fired into the glass, leaving behind a sepia image. The images are of grass, daisies, grape hyacinths, lavendar, and scarlet runner beans. I'll be developing some hand-drawn images for pendants soon, I hope.
