Long time away from the virtual world...

Hi all! Well its been quite awhile since I've been blogging. After three years of hard work I graduated from plymouth college of art with a 2:1

Not bad even if I do say so myself. So I've been having a much deserved break. I've found myself a job, a place to live and more importantly a place to make :)

I've been pretty disconnected from blogging and websites and making for the last six months and now (hopefully) I'm back with vengeance! Internet is up, not exactly running smoothly, but at least it will give me a small window of opportunity to keep you informed of what's going on in the world of Luce.

My time in a workshop environment has been cut down dramatically, from at least five days a week to one :( Its true when people say make the most of uni, you will never have facilities like that again! They were right, and I'm glad I listened to them!
    So now I'm on a quest to resource, beg, borrow and steal that kind of equipment from where ever and whomever I can. So far I have successfully managed to bag myself a workshop space every monday at the Stained Glass Studio in Bradford on Avon, run by Alan Spark.


Now all i need to do is locate a mig welder, anvil and a few other tools, and I think I have a lead.

Will soon post photos from degree show and new bits and bobs in the making, stay tuned...

I just uploaded my first ever video to youtube! Considering a year ago I used to hate technology I now feel quite proud of myself. Anyway... here it is, the final edit of my research video for my final degree project. Thanks again to all that helped produce it! You know who you are..


The dreaded time is upon us, I will be being assessed as of 9.25am on wednesday morning, so everyone wish me good luck and cross fingers for my last ever degree assessment :D very much looking forward to a well deserved break after this, Im just going to sit still all summer and not think of anything!

Busy on the Comp

I have just been sat at the computer for about nine hours and haven't even got round to my blogging for the day :-O will post a sneaky peak of what I have been up to on my Final Major Project blog.

My New Favorite Place

Reclamation yards...say no more.

This picture reminds me of the end of the video shoot i did  :)
 I have a love/hate reaction to this kind of thing.  

The Workshops

Well...have been super SUPER busy the last week transforming the workshops into gallery space for the summer show, the transformation has been amazing! Avery well done to all those making it happen, especially the AMAZING group of technicians we have at Plymouth College.

I've been getting properly stuck into cleaning windows, putting up supporting brackets, drilling exhibition boards, more cleaning and somewhere amongst it all I manage to finally finish all my practical work so yay me!  Following are a few snap shots I took today, so next time you see it, it will be full of beautiful work!
