A couple of pieces i made recently...


a new wall brooch and small painting..


close-up of wall brooch

This wall brooch was made using an old piece of crochet work sent to me by Marianne - its sewn onto the clay and i love this idea of using 'pieces of of the past' (especially crocheted doilies) and the difference in textures...

and more green love - a fantastic new collaborative blog made up of 11 talented girls dealing with oh so worthy green issues - sew green...
