Here is my memory pod.
I made this in a three day class with the lovely American artist Sandy Webster over at Goolwa, about 40 minutes from home. I have to say I am totally exhausted but it was with a lovely group of people in a beautiful setting. It is always a pleasure to go there.Inside my pod are a scroll of fabric with memories on it. I will undo that when I am not so tired, a small stab bound book, the cover I rusted in the Grampian and another concertina book with old stamps from my collection, all with meanings, a roll of shifu I had made. The pod itself looks rather like one of the river Murray tortoise shells. A wire for first covered in tissue from a dress making pattern and then in tea bags, dried and opened and then glued on top. I have covered that with a light coating of beeswax furniture polish. A bit more to do, but I am pleased with it. Now for dinner and bed before the next adventure at the end of the week.
