This series of work, Adornment, developed from the the Artefact series and the first two headdresses were shown as part of Colour Notes at the Knitting and Stitching show in 2018, but parts of this collection date to the previous year and an award winning entry to the Select Festival in Stroud.
The pieces utilise everything from rusted washers, nails, keys and screws through to recycled beads, plastic and sunflower stalks. Many can be worn though some pieces are surprisingly heavy.
‘Still Life’ runs at the Leicester Contemporary, 16 Market Street, Leicester, LE1 6DP until the 27th of November. (Tues- Sat, 11am – 6pm). Many thanks to @leicestercontemporary @florencetrust @leicestercitycouncil The Company of Artists cic and @designseasonleicester and of course special thanks again to Steve and Yuka.
