Title
ReConnect: Hanging By A Thread

My inspiration was new gardeners who are making a connection with the Earth and how it provides for us. During the pandemic, many people have been discovering the joy of planting a seed and watching it grow.  I have enjoyed their enthusiasm and it has renewed my love of gardening.  The three pieces that I created represent the soil (Life On Earth) with horizontal fibres representing the soil strata, vegetation (Green Growth) with vertical fibres, and the sun and sky (Solar Sky) which has a circular fibre layout.

Materials and Techniques
Wet felting of wool and silk fibres
