It's been really hot these days. We're talking about 35 degrees celcius. With the fan blasting at the highest speed, it's still....hot. Not really a comfortable weather to be playing with clay. I've not been touching much lately.
Over the weekend, I went to get a new computer screen. Mine had lasted for a solid 10 years or more. Come to think of it, it's really hard to find electrical appliances that last so long anymore, and mine was a bulky monitor! The new range are all flat screen monitors. I opted for a 20 inch screen! Great for playing computer games!
On another note, I'm glad I started preparing for the upcoming talk early. It's coming up in slightly over 2 weeks, and I think I'm about 85% ready. I just don't think given the various commitments I have, I could churn anything out in a month's time, so I'm very grateful I had more than 6 month's time to slowly put things together without feeling the rush. I don't have any expectations out of it, as it will really be an interesting experience for me to have so many people viewing my works up close for the first time. I'm just going to see what are the reactions of non-miniature collectors seeing it.
I have some new work made over the last week. One of which is another 1:12 scale miniature Tarte Profiteroles. It didn't occur to me until my Teammids team mate, Dales mentioned that this would look great on a St. Patrick's day dessert table. :) Pardon me, as I am not really familiar with St. Patrick's Day as we don't celebrate it. But I love the green ribbon; it brings a refreshing feel to it.
