My work: ‘Quotes’

27 05 2010

After what felt like intense making for the ‘Time‘ series, I felt I needed a counter-balance in making as well as it felt like time to make pieces that weren’t so personal and that someone else may be more inclined to wear. Something lighter and smaller was in order.

'Quotes'; amended copyright notice: not to be reproduced without permission

Little pieces to remember favourite phrases, hand-written on the markers; left to right:

  • For Keith: let me walk before they make me run‘ – the gorgeous Keith Richards; black and bronze colours because he’s totally rock and roll
  • For Milan: optimism is the opium of the people‘ – from Milan Kundera novel ‘The Joke’; this is a favoured quote of a dear friend of mine, and when I asked him what colours he thought of with this phrase he said greys
  • For Anais: life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage‘ – one of my favourites from the writings of Anais Nin; the colours are livelier and gorgeous

As I left Australia before the exhibition ‘Winter Brooches’ opened, as I write this I’m not actually sure which pieces will be shown…

Thank you Lisa – I am working on improving the fittings, but I do enjoy the weaving.
I hope you will be loading more photographs on your website soon – I’d like to see some more of your work too!
