Brittle

“Brittle” was made for the Prism Textiles Untold exhibition in 2022. It was inspired by osteoporosis, a disease caused by loss of bone mass, changing the structure of bone tissue. It’s called a silent disease because there are typically no symptoms until a bone breaks or one or more vertebrae collapse. By using traditional lace weaving techniques on real bones, I evoked the fragility and vulnerability of this troubling condition. You can read more about how I created this work in this blog post.

Rebound

The properties that make bindweed such a pain for gardeners – its length, strength and tendency to wind around everything, including itself – also make it perfect for weaving with. I spent many hours unravelling bindweed from local parks, gardens, and allotments and then reweaving it to create this sculpture of 50 pods for a Prism Textiles exhibition in 2021. It was also shown at the Botanical Fantastical exhibition at Morley Gallery in April 2022. It spirals up anticlockwise to represent how bindweed grows. You can read more about the process in this blog post.
