Lightness of Being

When I started making this series I wanted to make something that represented birdcages. A florist near me has beautiful tiny birds in cages.When I stopped to say hello to them I thought, no matter how beautiful they are, or how beautiful they sing, or how much they want to fly free they are stuck in that cage. I have empathy for those birds.

Interestingly when I started weaving, what came out of my hands was the opposite. These are about free flowing energy. Energy that is overflowing. Energy that flows from one sculpture to the next. They have a relationship with each other, yet are beautiful on their own.

Material: Pandanus naturally dyed.

Technique: twining.
