3 Eggs

Here is my finished '3 Eggs', another larger piece.

This egg has been printed onto my current favourite paper, embossed vintage wallpaper, and the doily motif went through various incarnations before becoming this simple dotty shape, printed onto some blossom-patterned tracing paper. The bird is slightly raised - I like adding different dimensions to pieces so they become very tactile.

This text is taken from The Go-Between, another recurring theme in my work. This book affected me greatly when I read it and when I was thinking of text to use for this piece, this popped into my head. I like the idea of these birds making a plan to meet!

These two eggs are made from a very thin, delicate, almost straw-like paper and they've been painted pale blue.

3 Eggs is in the shop.
