Felt scarf - First one made for this winter season

The mountains that can be seen from our home have inspired the colours along with Mnt Roland.

Tasmanian autumn and winter gives a magnificent blue to the horizon.

This scarf is Tasmanian Merino and silk.

With the days getting colder and greyer I am felting to build up stock for retail. But when its sunny, I am out working with glass.

Aloe Feb 2010


Is the first primal instinct of a woman to heal? In healing others, does she
heal something within herself? Where does the instinct to heal originate?

History has recorded that women who healed-who cared, who loved, who
nourished others, 'wise women'-were persecuted and often executed, regarded
as sinners.

In crafting this piece I celebrate the women of centuries past who gave of
themselves to nurture and nourish others; they are nameless and as one they
are beautiful for their sacrifice.
