Worm 2


This was an idea from a sketch. Again initially just a lovely form..I thought what would be suckers should be plates, but I didn’t want just plain plates so I added the colours ( Primary and white) in a sort of random pattern( also a bit of a homage to my friend Kerrie Warren who uses paint in a “random” way. I thought the plates would easily fit within the thickness of the metal edging but I learned I was wrong.. it was a bit tight, and a couple broke..I didn’t mind the spaces as they added to the general pattern.However in 2013 with so many broken plates I recycled it by using Marble off cuts Meaning?..I wanted to reflect a bit back to childhood( I do that a lot) when we used to get such pleasure from small garden life, slaters, worms, ants etc. We would often spend a long time looking at the detail and intricacy of these things. Now it pretty much has to be big to attract our attention. “Worm”was made with Flat bar, wire mesh and recycled plates in 2011.and recycled
