In looking at art, one is taken by representations of beauty, often in the female form. The ballet has been a source of artistic inspiration from at least the time of Degas. The grace of the ballet dancers I feel is echoed in the grace that occurs in many a netball game. I made a group sculpture with a netballer surrounded by Ballerinas and I decided to explore ballerina forms. I like her charm and the tutu from recycled nails appeals to my sense of fun. I expect to do further ballerina poses as there is quite a challenge in getting the balance and movement. The ballet is a story set in dance and this story could be anything.
