I am not doing anything much along the creative lines at the moment
I am just enjoying the quiet after the creative storm.
BUT I do have some news.......
I was delighted to receive an email this week stating that WOW will be exhibiting
my first (and maybe my last) CERAMIC costume 'She Shells'
in their Museum/Gallery in Nelson NZ for up to a year.
Given the weight and the fragility of ceramics
they are problematic to send overseas.
Let alone the challenge for the performers
(who did a wonderful job, I might add).
So I wasn't surprised when the wardrobe manager of WOW
pleaded with me to "please make your costumes in paper next time"
sorry Ingrid....I am planning a lighter one next year.
You see the conch shell that goes with the 'Conicles'
is made of paper and light as a feather.
I couldn't have the model inadvertently bumping the bra and breaking it!
Well could I?
It would have been kinder to make the bra of paper and the shell in ceramics....
but I wanted to do the impossible and make wearable ceramics....
I know, I am a bad girl....
However they do make quite good exhibition pieces I think....
(she says, hoping that they still look fresh after a two week run on the WOW stage!)
