Something old something new....

I have been to more weddings in the last 6 months than I have in my entire life. It seems that getting married is big right now! Which is fine by me - love a good wedding I do! So when Object asked me earlier this year if I wanted to be part of an exhibition called BLUE, where each artist was asked to make some work responding to a saying or a phrase containing the word blue, I jumped at the chance to get some of this marriage business out of my system and into some work - and to knock off a few overdue wedding presents at the same time! So working with the phrase Something Old Something New Something Borrowed Something Blue I've been playing around with some pieces that are a bit of a mixture of all that. Here's a sneak peak of what i've come up with for starters.

The show opens at Object in Sydney at the end of July.

I like the one with all the crossed off days.
I would need one with 38 years worth.
That would take front and back I bet!
Lovely idea and great gifts.

Mel Robson said...

Thanks everyone. just gave me a great idea! An anniversary gift rather than a wedding one!

Cass - So many spoons so little time! Hope yours are turning out well! I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

These are fantastic. I'm in love with your sense of restraint and design.
