Another project that has been on my mind since before Christmas when we moved into our house, was to make a splashback for the sink in our ensuite bathroom. Everyday I'd look at the empty space and envision all of these different ideas. After making a peg rail a couple of weeks ago (reference my earlier blog "Side Projects"), I realized that rather than making something far more complicated than I have the facilities to accomplish on my own (which I kept stumbling over, because I had it in my head that I wanted to make something out of clay...a bit of a conundrum given that I have neither clay, glaze or a kiln!) I should keep it simple. So I just used some pieces of MDF board that I had lying around the studio - which happened to be the perfect size for the project - and collaged the boards with vintage reproduction maps of France. Ideal as the subject ties in with the peg rail. It was both an "aha" and "duh!" moment realized at the same time!
