Fun Day at The Studio- 16.4.2013. Took pics of plants on the way to work; was monitored by my cat while doing wirework; Ujala made amazing recycled plastic lilies and I worked on our chandelier for the KZNSA Democracy Exhibition. Nice cool weather as well, so we got a lot done :)

Working at The Studio 14.4.2014 :) Amazing sunrise. I wish Summer was like this. Worked on our Recycled Material Coral Reef Wall Installation. We drank some Mountain Dew as we needed to make some baby fish from the bottle. Lordie, what an 'interesting' cool drink!!!! The installation looks great, and we are keen to complete it this week. Life is good :)

Hibernating on a Sunday :) Hiding away on a Sunday with my cat, my art materials and a glass of red. Heard a good friend mugged last night for his cell phone. Worst is we are grateful that people are not killed. Really, should we be grateful for substandard Government?
