It Was Morning and the New Sun Sparkled Gold Across the Ripples of the Golden Sea

145 GBP

IT WAS MORNING, AND THE NEW SUN SPARKLED GOLD ACROSS THE RIPPLES OF THE GOLDEN SEA But way off alone, out by himself beyond boat and shore, Jonathan Livingston Seagull was practising. A hundred feet in the sky he lowered his webbed feet, lifted his beak, and strained to hold a painful hard twisting curve through his wings. The curve meant that he would fly slowly, and now he slowed until the wind was a whisper in his face, until the ocean stood still beneath him. Richard Bach, Jonathan Livingston Seagull. One in a series of pieces inspired by the book. This piece is made with a mixture of wet and needle felting, British wool in natural and hand dyed colours. Framed 30cm x 25cm

I am a fibre artist working in rural Somerset and basically, I’m obsessed with beautiful British wool, it is my inspiration - it is at the heart of everything I do. Because of its fabulous eco-credentials and it’s diverse properties, I am able to sculpt with it or make it gossamer thin in order to make studies of the sea and passing moments, sketches in wool.

All of my work has an emphasis on the environment and sustainability.

In my small pieces, I needle felt into vintage containers; with these, I aim to create vignettes of the more elusive creatures of our countryside as seen in my recent exhibition, FIFTY BEES.

My larger pieces are concerned with the British coast. Using reclaimed materials, beach combed finds and combining them the wool, I aim to emphasise the legacy of man’s interaction upon the sea.
