Silk and Silver

Childhood activities of sewing, knitting and crocheting have given me a passion for making and working directly with materials. My new work in 2012 sees the introduction of colour using oxidized silver and brightly coloured silk thread. Picking up on my creative childhood activities this new work rekindles my love of making using thread. The thread is used as an alternative way of constructing to 'sew' tubes of silver together creating lightweight graphic pieces. The construction method and the lightweight nature of this work opens up new opportunities for creating interesting structures as well as playing with scale.
