Ruskin Mill College Lantern Festival 2020, 2021 & 2022
I ran workshops for the lantern festival at Ruskin Mill College in December. A beautiful event that lights up the valley around the lakes. Music, drama and hundreds of candles to light the way.
Floating illuminated sculptures made with students and staff.
Willow and tissue paper, LED lights.
'Queen Bee' walkabout sculpture
Made in collaboration with Freya Morgan for the Shambala festival carnival parade, 2018 and 2019
Willow, fabric, mixed media
Rhod rural artspace, Melin Glonc, Carmarthenshire, 2011
Installation suspended in the trees. Willow soaked in the stream and woven on site. Born out of an idea to create cocoon-like forms that seem at home in the natural environment.
Laminated English Ash, carved Oak bases and Willow.
'Windmills' - UWIC Art and Design Degree show 2010
Paper sculpture inspired by the geometry of the earth. Each repeating shape was cut and constructed in proportion according to the Fibonacci sequence. Exploring growth, the natural world, and how certain forms appear balanced to the human eye.
White cartridge paper, clear nylon thread.
