Silk bowl for pollen

Exhibition date getting closer, September 5th racing towards us. I have so much to do. I have made a list and gradually crossing items off, ha ha! One of them a bowl to contain wonderful pollen the bees have collected.

and now in colour

I started with experimenting with textures and patterns on the sandblaster, added crochet in linen  and mohair threads, all in ecru. But I do love colour and after the summer workshop where discussions included an very interesting one about our individual confidence in the use of colour in our work I decided to quit ecru and use the colours I'd gathered at the workshop. This has bought me to knitting and crocheting colours and textures together. I hope to create a range of lengths for the exhibition, now I am considering how I will display them at 44AD.

The bees

It has taken me five hours to do one bee and it still hasn't any wings, ha!
