Here's part 2 in my Thing's I've Made. This was part 1.
Above is a corset and skirt I made a few years ago called Titania. Hand dyed fabrics, machine made lace (by moi), fully lined and boned corset with embellishments including hand-beading, lino-printing and stitching. Below is a detail of the corset.
I did an evening course in Lost Wax Casting at Polytechnic a couple of years ago and below is a piece I made. I used a piece of vintage lace which I coated in wax, cast in plaster and then cast in fine silver. I then had to clean it up and attach chain. I really love it.
Below is another of my wearable art dresses called Fleur. This is a pretty simple design for me but I enjoyed making flowers from pretty cotton florals and attaching it to the dress made from lace and hand-dyed silk.
This is probably the most unusual piece I have made. I few years ago I attended a workshop by a very talented artist called Keith Lo Bue. The workshop was using found objects to create new pieces. This is a pendant called Pearl of Wisdom and consists of an old spoon, transparency, vintage chandelier crystal, seed pearl and underneath the crystal is in fact one of my wisdom teeth I had kept for many years. Not for everyone but I like it (not that I ever wear it).
Well, there you go.
This post was initially supposed to be 7 things about me and so I would like to pass it on to 3 local Hobart blogs...
Catherine at Little Glowing Lights
Emma at Emma Burgess
Jane at Life on Planet Baby
I would also like to give a shout out to Pamela at Mountain Living who has been going through chemo and could do with our positive thoughts.
Ladies, up to you if you wish to post about yourselves!
