on the other side of the glass something sometimes totally different.
is not Christmas tide like in any way but very optimistic – it is a building that I first knew in 1989 when it was the citizens advice bureau in Ashley Terrace Chester le Street. It stopped being this about 17 years ago – there’s a new office near the parish church now. For about 17 years it gradually became a rotting, empty shell that all those who worked there as volunteers really were sad about and I’m sure the other residents in the street felt more strongly about. Well this past summer at last a builder has taken it on and it’s almost ready for its new occupants and lives will continue within the walls again. Buildings are inanimate and yet when they are cold and empty – that’s when their ability to be part of our lives becomes most apparent.

‘Tea and bicycle rides’ is a long term print project 2 years and still working on the pages for the book I’m almost ready to start printing images onto the letterpress pages – the first etched aluminium plate is ready to be proofed.
Another 2 years maybe for the finished bound book.
I’ve added 54 hand made prints to my online Etsy shop – there are 60 items in total includes 6 hand made artists’ books. I will be adding more each week.
