As our day in the Hackney Wick studio draws to a close we reflect on the plethora of activity that has occurred. We’ve seen numerous workshop neighbours popping in and out, including graffiti artists, tailors, shoe makers, and fashion and graphic designers all the while a variety of labour inducing music has filled the air. Throughout these periods, and since our last blog, Ed has begun utilising a Japanese saw (aka a nokoeiri) to vigilantly carve away shapes and curves into the small leather blocks. The glue has been applied to the long shreds of skin and is now ready for compression. No doubt their work will press on into the night and tomorrow will see further and remarkable progression toward the final piece, and we for one, cannot wait!
