|Inside looking out. It is interesting how different views give a different look - light from outside drains the colour and makes coverage look sparse.|
I was (and still am) involved in a project at our local Library in a joint project between the Embroiderers' Guild NSW and the City of Canada Bay (my council area) in the creation of 4 tree installations. The Council created 4 tree forms and sought expressions of interest to fibre artists to create a fibre installation to cover the the forms - one pf which was to live on a first floor balcony.
These are photos of the tree I made to live outside - it has a western aspect which was challenging - the strong Aussie sun is a cruel mistress when it comes to colour. The motifs are from a repurposed table cloth and treated with a water based fabric hardener which is weatherproof. The colours selected reflect colours used internally. I used aluminimum wire which is a wonderfully sogft and a breeze to bend.
Thanks to Paverpol Australia for their sponsorship and support in this part of the project.
