HEART OF CAGE

Here is a work I have designed for the
WASTE TO ART Comp the Blue Mountains City Council
is having in March.......














































































































This was originally inspired by my fascination with bird cages........
Then I found these branches which had been cut and thrown out
on the footpath.  This inspired me to make a cage out of
something more natural.......These have been join together
by wrapping and tying.........

The hearts are made of material (clothes) which were had been
thrown out at the tip.......I have been very inspired to crochet
lately, so deciding to crochet the hearts.  I really like the earthy
raw feeling of them........

Please excuse the quality of the photos.  Will one day have to get
a camera......

Great work! The crocheted heart looks good with those branches. Will you be making a bird too? I think that'd be awesome.
