Description

Wandering III is a new mirrored wall artwork featuring over 2300 delicately worked pieces of willow woven together and adorned with an abstrast pattern of miniature mirrors. Started in 2019 the piece was recently completed and presented to a new audience in October 2021 as part of London Craft Week.

The idea for the piece was born from the Wandering series where the tree branch dictates the form and structure of the artwork, though this piece deviates by offering a much gentler undulation and lighter impression comparative to the dynamic sculptural forms of Wanderings I and II.

The willow branches were sustainably cut in winter from a Weeping Willow Tree at friends near Stamford, England and over time I have peeled back the bark to reveal the creamy quality of the wood. It was my desire to create a woven artwork that I could keep growing over time until the wood was fully used up.

Materials:- Sustainably cut Willow branches, felled in winter from Lincolnshire friends, polished mirror steel and copper wire.
