I'm studio-sitting/shop-keeping part-time at a studio/shop on Granville Island while Jasna, the artist, is away on a residency. It is grrreat to have a space to work, and because the facilities are limited and different from what i'm used to, i find myself working quite differently - handbuilding and low firing. These are pendants.

I think tire swings are interesting.
Their purpose shifts drastically from car-part to toy.
They are reminiscent of summers when we were 6 years old. By making mini tire-swings and hanging them in public places i hope to make a few people smile.
I've started with a couple of low traffic places, like this one here. It is along a path at Jericho Park. Eventually I will place them in different sorts of environments.
