Phew - I got it finished and pics sent away (and it's already confirmed as one of the selected pieces..... double phew!)
Orbis Floris (World Flower)
approx 34cm dia and 5cm 'high'
My 20 word art statement (yes - just twenty words..... gulp) to go with this piece reads:
"Created from a reclaimed atlas and inspired by permaculture, 'Orbis-floris' is an exploration in material, form and technique."
(and by now most regular readers would know that the 'exploration' pun was intended... hee hee hee)
And talking of regular viewers - you folk will no doubt see that this piece owes its construction to all those circular coptic bound forms that I have been playing with.... even if I haven't come up with a pain-free (or profanity-free) method of making, I think I've managed to iron out some of the pesky problems for a more 'finished' piece here..... so I'm feeling rather happy with myself this afternoon......
time to go play with the kidlins who have just returned from a hard day at school (the first of the new term)
