I am also working on a new collection of work for an exhibition at Object Gallery, curated by Kylie Johnston, that opens in August. It is called Blue. A group of 9 makers have been asked to respond to a phrase or saying related to 'blueness'. Mine is "Into the Blue", so into the blue I am going, with a collection of neckpieces and brooches using blue thread and semi-precious stones.... It is proving to be an exciting challenge as I am usually drawn to working with warmer colours!
Here are some brooches that I have just completed for the Winter Brooches 2010 exhibition at Studio 20/17 which opens on Tuesday 4 May.
There are some amazing artists in these exhibitions and I feel very privileged to have been invited to participate in them!
