i have been collecting some things and found these lovely repair jobs - was enjoying them so much had to share
there were a few different handstyles
but the spiral ones i like the most
very lovely
very very
am using these objects
as a basis for new work
i like that they come with
a story already
patched upon
their surface

snakes for breakfast

this morning we woke up as little girl walked outside cos she wanted vegemite instead of peanut butter on her toast...usual thing.

She had been outside for a while, so checked out the back, went inside and just out of the corner of my eye i saw this pattern on the table....
my other big girl went 'muuuuum' and then it dawned upon me.....

a big (like BIGGGGG) 3 metre carpet python was on the table....shhhhiiittttttt
i jumped and freaked. Man, it was still freaking out.

We also have a pet water moniter and birds....people asked me how do you live in this wild land and now i pause to ponder whether i will want to have breakfast outside again!!!

details details......

what i did to the kimono.....

the work

gallery splots

these are pics (albeit poor quality) from gallery of show....two worlds

there is heaps of light in the gallery, however over the past week it has been dark, thundery and cloudy so only a soft, subdued light. However, makes you want to curl up in a blanket, of which there are some in the show, so maybe there is some benefit??
