Just finished work on this big captain puppet, which will be part of the Paisley Weave festival next month. Going to make a start on a merchant puppet now, more on that soon.
The super talented Lorna Irvine interviewed Suzie about the Weird Sisters - if you have a minute then why not have a read!
Been working for the past few days on a portable neon sign for the aerial circus / sonic art performance Liquid Sky.
It uses flexible LED neon tubing which means it is very robust compared to traditional neon tubes, and it can also be taken apart and rolled up for transit.
Below you can see the stages of the build:
- 1:1 plan
- Backboards cut from 6mm ply and bolted so they can be dismantled for travel
- Painted semi-gloss black
- PVC channel to hold the neon cut to lengths and screwed in place
- Neon tube measured, cut and attached to the power source
- Neon clipped in place
- Unwanted areas taped out
It's exciting when you get a great photographer like Eoin Carey to document your set!
"... a truly exceptional piece of work."

Just found out that Martin O'Connor's brilliant show The Mark of The Beast is now officially brilliant, as Mary Brennan gave it 5 stars in this wonderful review!
I haven't managed to get my hands on the professional photos yet, but here are a few hazy snaps I took on my phone during rehearsals showing the set in a variety of flavours.
If you live in Edinburgh then there's one last chance to catch the show at the Storytelling Centre this Thursday, 19th April at 7.30pm. Tickets are here.
