Ray Norman makes his Third Encounter with our studio’s red stump. Sunday, Dec 5 2004 

Cultural Icon and general ‘bad lad’ strikes again locally for issues as diverse as Land Literacy, ZENzing wisdom and general Cultural Jamming. Although his visit coincided with his Mother’s passing and the general clean-up of the estate in Murwillumbah, his studio visit had us patinating large domestic copper boiling pots, R.S.B. (rip, shit and bust) enamelling, painting up a storm, searching and documenting ‘crap’ sites for future artworks, visiting and consecrating the bare earth site of the new GOMA for his Dada-dooings & generally perking up the troops at Jeweller to the Lost studio. A warning, Ray starts projects at whim so the following are items of interest at the time of writing this blopost:

Emma in Sydney and Sophie in London and since these young ladies have started the ball rolling we are greatful to have made engagement and wedding jewellery for many more bright young things in the years to come.
