BOWLS

My work has long been inspired by textile patterns and motifs drawn from the intricate quill and needlework of indigenous Mi'kmaq and women's textiles, by my research into Western textile history and the central role played in it by women, and by my mother's personal involvement in the British textile industry earlier this century.

I have deliberately placed the "stitched" bowls on pedestals, to celebrate women's work over the centuries. The symbols and icons I have used, along with the leather and copper wire, are both personal and accessible. The smaller, more functional bowls, still contain the textile references, including rug hooking, quilting and embroidery patterns.
