I was struggling with a new line in birds this morning in the studio and feeling a little lack- lustre. As I was looking around the room ( distracted rather than searching for inspiration!) I came across this paper brooch that I’d started to make a few years ago and had left to be continued.
I fell in love with it again. A Fairytale World.
A few nights ago, just as I was nodding off to sleep with my head on my pillow, I heard our local owl. I can’t tell you how much I love that sound, it’s so magical and ancient. Perhaps the owl brought this brooch back to my attention.
I can now see it in a new format and will be incorporating it with ceramic to become an interior design item rather than a fashion accessory. I think it could be the start of some new and exciting work.
