onlocation

onlocation is the name of the exhibition opening tomorrow in the Leitrim Design House, in which I have a piece. (Click here for more info)

Here is some info about the show:
Each maker was asked to consider their response to ideas of place, and the connections formed in their mind by these ideas. Each of them has produced a unique work, inspired by a location of importance to them. The resulting project has given rise to some very personal work, at times using materials and themes not usually considered when working within their traditional field of expertise. These themes range from childhood experiences, through the natural world in different forms, to concepts of freedom and belonging – and all arising from thoughts of place.
If you are about Carrick-on-Shannon tomorrow, the opening is from 7-8.30pm and all are welcome.
The piece I made uses felted sculpture made with wool from my neighbour's Shetland sheep. More info and pictures coming soon!

Hi come for a visit.

How weird, I have been experimenting with felting this week, just haven't had time to blog.

Can't wait to see more!
