Thread, Paper, Fibre, Clay

I am very excited about the upcoming exhibition 'Thread, Paper, Fibre, Clay' at the Depot II gallery (26th June - 8th July). Preparation for the show is well under way and I will be showcasing some new pieces, as well as some old favourites that have been revisited. I am moving into a more three dimensional direction with some pieces coming further off the wall than ever before. 

I am exhibiting alongside some amazing artists for this show including the felting artist Rae Woolnough (who also happens to be my very talented mother), Hand cut paper artist Lisa Rodden and the ceramicist Christine Mackinnon. All of our work shares a great sensitivity to our chosen mediums and all of the artists aim to push the boundaries and capabilities of their materials. Thread is knotted into dense sculptural forms, paper is brought to life with cutting and curling, fibre is matted into fantastical shapes and textures and clay is shaped into delicate structures that are embellished with found natural materials. 

Below are a few teasing images of the work of Lisa, Christine and Rae. I hope they wet your appetite. See you at the show!
