The glass -bowls are all washed and sparkling, then wrapped in several layers of bubble-wrap, packing materials and in boxes ready to go. A strange combination of my personal ‘identities ‘ were referenced by using these boxes, I realised …. and I forgot to mention the choice of glass rather than ceramic. Glass is an amorphous solid but exhibits an atomic structure close to that observed in a supercooled liquid phase. I have chosen to work with glass before as it is both fixed and mutable – appropriate for documentation of an action because of this temporal quality.
I popped into town to buy the parcel tape and went to see how Belflair were getting on with the chocolates.
They were all in the shop and Gillian ( below) was busy wrapping them in the foils!
Wednesday 29th June: I took the glass parcels to Mail Boxes Etc , for Marian and Phil Cullen to send to Wilson Road by courier.
Thursday 30th June: Got back in time to pick up the chocs, all beautifully wrapped, ready for sending tomorrow morning. Gillian was very excited and pleased with the results. So was I. I gave her some invitations for Belflair to the Public View on Crouch Hill on the Thursday 14th and took some to Banbury Print, and Marian and Phil at MBE.
