I don't know about you, but sometimes you go to a show, you see a gallery of work, and you simply get quite blown away!
Or is it just me?
At the Fashion, Embroidery and Stitch show, which I mentioned in my last post, it was this gallery of work that did the blowing!! I was knocked over by it all.
First up, this automaton. You really had to see it move. I have always loved automatons - there's a magic about them.
These were on the wall.
The 'silver' bits are in fact Pewter.
They are Christina Brazier, Seonaid Brookes, Jackie Copping, Ann Dekkers, Helen O'Leary, Ann Small and Sue Walton. I think it was Ann Dekkers who did the automaton and I am pretty certain that it is Jackie who does the tags.
The gallery included these simple monochrome figures by Christine Brazier.
