Following that Silvery Thread Again

Another post about the current exhibition 'A Silver Thread' at the headquarters of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen at Bovey Tracey, this time, quite a quick one, featuring the work of Mike Tingle, a printmaker who sometimes works in copper.

Now this piece is made up of nine wonderfully enamelled and embossed pieces of metal, both skills that I'd love to gain some competency at.  And there is a story from Greek mythology that interweaves the nine pictures that make up this work.  However, whilst doing the research I've imbibed two of the wonderful beers from Mr Lovelygrey's kegerator .  This may be why the meaning behind the story of Ariadne's thread is lost on me so you'll have to look it up yourself!
