Artist Talk : Jo Lathwood
Wonderful to see the process of casting so indulged. The Lava casting process was very exciting to see. The question I had in mind was when does the process crowd out intention and ideas? However she concluded with a comment that she was looking forward to indulging in working with wooden construction and at a faster pace again.
A great example of an artist getting on and creating opportunities and finding ways to balance practice and practicalities of living.
