The greeneyed monster has become a silver eyed one. Yesterday more time sorting garden. I restored an eye to the Yew Monster. It had a copper cymbal as an eye - to become a green eyed monster - but after six years the neck began to wither and I was advised it was being poisoned by the copper. Its removal has led to the hedge recovering. So now it has a hubcap for an eye.

One of the sculptures , made by young offenders in Bristol, on show in the Horsepower exhibition at Horseworld near Bristol, has started to fall apart after a few days through over enthusiastic audience interaction. It is agreed to move it into the workshop for greater superivision. It is mainly papier mache and delicate.

My fellow curator Caroline Read may have found a sponsor to transport the rearing life sized horse of Dean Williams to the Horsepower Exhibition. The horse has starred in the local media including the BBC in Leicestershire and we hope we can get it to Bristol and attract similar interest. Dean sends me a copy of article in Leicester Mercury which shows him with the horse. It does look spectacular.
