girls on time

I'm participating in the tenmoregirls group exhibition again this year. Our exhibition theme for 2013 is Time.

Based on the question 'how much time do you give something before you give up on it?', my work explores the tension between patience and frustration. Its forms are inspired by stress balls, line graphs, cave formations and rock weathering.

I discovered merino fleece a few years ago. It's such a beautiful material to work with, though the painstaking process of needle-felting for this project is certainly going to test my patience!
