November has been an awful month, one of my oldest and dearest friends passed away,my partner faced redundancy from his job and I have had the upheaval of a full central heating installation in my new home.

I have had the chance to make a few new things some of which has featured in exhibition with `Moving Clay`,the art group I belong to. One of these items is a necklace made from the adult comic book `Viz`the contents of Viz could be described as rude,lude and politically incorrect but I find it often hilarious and given the general vibe of November its been good to have a reason to laugh.

This is one of the thoughts behind my work,the notion that although gold and diamonds are undoubtedly valuable in monetary terms the value of a good laugh when down or a map when lost surely is worth so much more.
