New in August 2019

I was inspired earlier this year by an exhibition of Pattern & Decorative Arts - "Ornament as Promise" in Mumok, Vienna. I was particularly taken with the fabric panel composites by USA artist Kim MacConnel. The first 2 images are bowls I made after I returned.

Composing these strips of patterns I was reminded of the compositions we made in the 1970s and I made a series of large pendants that hang below the chest. Only the first pendant is finished - the others are wip. The last two pendants were made to go with striped T-shirts!

I made a couple of bowls as well and then I could not resist a little bit of brightness so I made a bowl of stripes - graduating colours from red to ocre separated by charcoal and "bits".  The result has a primitive feel - of the earth!

The last image I will share is a sculptural earring. It is a composite but going in a different direction.
