sound from shells in the summer wind

knitted copper wire, tatted silk thread
mother of purl buttons and some sort of shell.


There was a rainbow this late afternoon expended across the sky .
lovely way to end the day's light + wonderful too start the night.

to have more then you can wear

here we go more to wear

Life through glass

I have been seeing life through a glass ball lately ,vague but clear a different vision of life when repetition seems to be all you see and you cant get out.

Tatting has become an obsession but I don't mind ,once you start you can't stop.

I have a love affair with shells and silk ,when I came across these shapes made out of shell i saw the two go hand in hand,tatting with silk and shells...that can be "so" nice too make art as pleasant as finding a shell on a this work I am not after complicated counting the simplicity off every knot is a story on its own this work is entirely free , freedom is what i am after this year.

opal sky

How beautiful it can be a sky like a candy store, you cant get enough you want more and more a lust for the eye ,food for your thoughts ,I feel like a heavenly being underneath a blanket of color wrapping myself again into this moment ,it will be gone soon the ever changing ,in a moment I have to capture and safe it all in a vivid memory.
