< Quick Project > Manufactured glass versus Craft

Ever since I got back from Pilchuck, I tried to practice Michiko Miyake's Quick Project technique. This consists on giving yourself time to do sketches, drawings, collages, pretty much anything, to stimulate the creative process and come up with new ideas without any restrictions from your brain. This is basically trying to avoid sabotage and let your creative side of the brain be the boss.
This is one of the many that I've done since. This is particularly interesting because I am using a bottle mass produced and constructing a new connection to Craft, by engraving unique marks.  
The picture above shows the process from beginning to end. Step 1, 2, 3 & 4.

< Inspiration > London

I wanted to share some of my pictures from our trip to London. What an amazing city! I didn't know what to expect, and ended up loving it, can't wait to go back and explore it some more! These ones are of specific buildings/ architecture that caught my eye. Enjoy :D
