Always one to love creating to a challenge!
Tickle the Imagination mag put out a call to create a pin cushion that referenced 'winter blues'.
I love nothing more than being tucked up in my studio when its raining outside and I cant get into the garden- so I thought I would have a play.
So first I created a silk screen of a line drawing of cloud shapes, then a little porcelain pinch pot was made and clouds and rain were printed on the surface, twice through the kiln it travelled, then a piece of calico was screen printed with the clouds and gathered up to be inserted in the bowl. A sweet little pin cushion has joined my sewing table.
Its creation has bought on the rain!! Yay a day in the studio tomorrow is planned. Im having a big clean up to be ready for my photo shoot this Friday- great images are in the plans for the website soon 😊👏
