Recycling

I rather liked these recycled found objects. These lovely utensils below have reused book images that remind me of my childhood.

Do you remember the Hyperbolic Reef that everyone was talking about and which I blogged about last year? Well, there was a small sample on display at the SFP Show. If you click on the link to Rockpoolcandy.com you will be swept away by the gorgeous colours and variety there. I warn you, there are some mouthwatering yarns there too! Don't look if you suffer from yarn envy! The artist's name is inga hamilton.

Aren't these little creatures gorgeous? I've copied the artist's statement for you to read. Googling Mary Moox I discovered that she is rumoured to make sock monkeys too!

Hi Julie,
thank you so much for your kind words about my underwater sculptures. I'm glad that you like them. I haven't even seen them myself yet, but plan to catch them at Aintree on the opening day.
Hope to see people there.

Hi Julie, I saw these spoons at the "Creative Stitches Show" at Exeter last autumn - they are so great arn't they. Very inspiring! I also saw the jellyfish which are absolutely amazing. I like your recent blogs very much showing the work of these very talented artists as I have some photos myself somewhere but never got round to doing anything with them! You have reminded me and I will try to find them as the jellyfish will go very well with my seaweed project I will be working on again over the summer. All for now, have a great creative week. Very best wishes, Carolyn x
