Not blogging lately about reinventing, recycling etc….. Been busy preparing for Art Exhibtion in October …..and hibernating in these cold winter months !

 Doing 2 Exhibtion 12 months apart has being tiring, especially emotinally! You put yourself out there and it’s quite draining. Next yr have a break! Have a few art projects that need time to evolve.

  
Did make this last week . Turned the front bedroom into my meditation and yoga room! This blanket is good in here. Love the vibes in this room, great for relaxation. 

   
I do love collecting blue and white China. Amazing what you can find in charity shops. Have to pay bit more these days! No longer 50 c a peice!

ART INSTALLATIONS……………Permanent or Temporary………

They are a 3 dimensional work of art that is very often specific to a particular site. They are designed to change or transform ones perception of the space.
My butterflies were made for a particular exhibition. Now they are home,were do I hang them?! Ive chosen to hang them outside, subject to the weather & enjoy them for as long as they last. As butterflies in their natural habit are outside subject to the elements.

Below is a photo of pieces of pottery along side old wire, metal etc.
I’m wanting to make some sculptured pieces incorporating beads, pottery and old bits of metal etc. I will look at this stuff, move things around until I “find” some things that are working well together. Then I will begin making the some sculptures!

These pieces of pottery have now been fired. I’ve just collected some old rusted wire and metal from my Dads which I plan to incorporate into the pottery pieces to make some unique sculptures.

I was at a girl friends place recently and her daughter was making some lanterns from coloured paper to hang . I was inspired so I went home and made some from old used envelopes. Funny I actually showed this young girl how to make lanterns when she was 4-5, and now she's inspiring me!
The circle of life!

Last week it was so cold that I got in and made a new curtain and very large draft stopper for the front door. I used an old queen size quilt cover for the project.
