"Pommies on the Vine"
Inspired by a visit to friend’s house who had a basket of homegrown pomegranates on her kitchen table which I remember from my childhood on a hot summer’s day. I was drawn to subtle changes of colour within the surface of the fruit and the shape of the fruit.
My pomegranates are created from silk using the shirbori method of pole wrapping and represent the blossom of the pomegranate. They are embellished with beads depicting the morning dew and the deliciousness of the juicy fruit within and have been mounted on a rusty wire “vine”.
This piece is currently in exhibition at Red Rock Regional Theatre & Gallery
