After some tense negotiation it has been agreed that it is all about the Mr this week. There are some deadlines looming and this one is headed out the door to the Toyota Community Spirit Gallery for the Hybrid Sculpture 2009 exhibition in Melbourne.
He’s been using a light absorbing, ultra flat chromatic paint – officially dubbed in this household as Suck Your Eyes Out Blue. Throw a UV light on it and it’s not, um, subtle.
I’m sort of hoping it comes back to live at our house. Although with the current space issues, it’ll likely end up inhabiting the bathtub.
The bit that is about me is the knitting with this stuff again.
After staring at that pelican, I’m not sure this is doing a whole lot for the poor eyes either. Fine spidery stitches that don’t exactly glide on and off the needles – but worth it, I reckon, for that texture I can’t stop obsessing about and the ‘memory’ in the stainless steel and silk yarn.
Next up: crafted eye mask and refrigerated cucumber rings.
For easy on the eye Creative Spaces pop on over to Kirsty’s...
PS. Habu yarn now available in Australia at Ecoyarns...
