Silver & Black

I’ve been immersed in a beautiful sea of metallic silver origami paper and stunning, elegant silver and black ribbons recently putting the finishing touches to a 5 window Christmas installation for Orb Hair and Beauty, New Farm ... not long to go now before all will be revealed!

I love the texture of these sculptural heart features I made using wire and predominantly black with a touch of silver ribbon (a balanced reversal of the striking silver origami orbs which incorporate a single black satin ribbon). These hearts evoke memories of 'Swan Lake' for me and in particular, of the 'black swan' ... although within the work, symbolise love and the spirit of giving at Christmas.
