Some art works for the wall - in yarn!

It's been a long time since I've posted anything on my blog. So here I am to break the silence with something I am really proud of, and hope you love it too.

"Cell Structure" - crochet cotton and resin - 250 x 600mm
I wanted to do something with resin for this project. And I was inspired by microscopic photos of cell structures. This took a little experimenting. My first attempt I didn't like, and put down somewhere. A few weeks later I rediscovered it and decided it did have potential. This is the end result.

"Colony in Red" - mixed yarns, crochet, on plywood - 340 x 1000mm
You may remember "red barnacles" which was done in a reclaimed frame. I received many comments about the frame. So this time I decided to try them in an organic shape. I was inspired here by barnacle shells crammed into a crack at sea side rock pools.

I have entered both of these into the NSW arts and crafts society's 2014 Emerging Artist - Craft Award (find here). Good luck to anyone else that enters!
