26cm x 26cm, Polymer clay
I was on my flight from Dublin to Riga at the end of Winter 2019 when an idea for this wreath or crown design started to form. I suppose thread has a symbolic meaning of connection. In the creation process, extruded polymer clay threads are twisted and aligned, mirroring our everyday thoughts; the invisible connections we make with nature, ourselves, family and community around us.
