Been Having a Little Fun

November 2, 2016

So Marg (sister-in-law and collaborator in all things fibre related) and I have recently put together a small bleached reef titled “In Our Life Time” … it’s a small piece portraying the plight of coral reefs around the globe, and features a collection of crocheted bleached “coral” mounted onto a lovely piece of driftwood that Marg found on the beach near her home in Phillip Island (Aus).

We had a lot of fun working with the different shapes and wholly enjoyed the process of pulling it together … which is a way we like to work.  This was really Marg’s baby, but as always, we collaborate so well that it’s so much more enjoyable to work together.

The upshot of all that is we entered the piece in the Phillip Island Artist’s Society Exhibition over Melbourne Cup weekend and while we didn’t win any of the major prizes, we did manage to snaffle a People’s Choice Award … that’s exciting.
