My on-line diary began in the 1990's from my studio in the North of England. After a lapse of ten years, I resumed posting from my present studio on the Caribbean island of Dominica.

From the far beginning, the intention has been to give an insight into my working methods, and to share the triumphs, trials and tribulations of work-in-progress.

My diary pages are followed by thousands of artists, art students and art lovers in over 50 countries.

A piece of cake…

Both as artist and engineer my work rangers from the monumental to the diminutive.  Here is a simple but effective jig, designed and manufactured in my workshop, for slicing cake and bread pudding into a set number of standard sized pieces.  The frame fits over the baking tray and the knife follows the guide plates.  Around the rim of the frame are the stainless steel location studs that Tristan turned a couple of days ago. 

This piece of technology sadly marks the end of an era.  I will no longer be able to pick out the biggest slice when next at the bread shop.
