This is me trying out a larger scale leading on from the piece with the slate from last week. That’s not to say that piece is a maquette of any sort- it is definitely a piece of its own but it only becomes that on a plinth at eye level, as opposed to a low-down or ground-level setting.
I’ve been thinking about this piece in terms of display too, as one of the key elements of both these pieces is the way the basket part hangs so low it almost touches the surface below it- but it doesn’t. It’s tantalisingly close and I love the tension that creates, emphasised by the warping of the crochet above it. This large one could be sat on a plinth maybe 2 foot high.
I’m going to dye the white basket bit dark red because the white is a bit kitsch and nautical for me right now.
Just a note, if you want to reblog this, feel free to remove all my above writing if you don’t want it clogging up your blog- but please as always, leave the source intact and credit my name if you can. Thanks.
