I don't really talk about my brooches that much or do I? I have been making them for about three years now and occasionally bring out a new shape....now everything seems to be laser cut (still loving it nevertheless) but I knew when I began that if I was going to beat the 'machine' I would have to something to my cut designs that no machine can do... so I started to draw on them and make every single one unique and special.
Earlier this year I was booked to exhibit at A Room of Her Own for SALA (South Australian Living Artists festival) but Ellie and Gloria, after much consideration, have decided to close their gallery :-( which renders Queen Street without a gallery and me without a venue. Luckily the work I had started for that show will now be exhibited at the new Nest Studio for SALA.
I have made these little birds which will also be on the walls of Nest Studio. I meant for them to be a surprise except the trays of them have been discovered and outed recently by some of the mums visiting the art classes-so be it!
Here are a few photographs. I think I will call them 'wishing birds' as they each carry a gift or a posy of wishes, ribbons, flowers and leaves. They are very simply added to sit about .5 cm out from a wall individually or in a group and create a lovely shadow. If you would like one please email me or come to the Nest Studio opening 6th August 6pm 147 Magill Road, Stepney, South Australia, everyone is invited x
