This artwork started with the idea of using a circular piece of wire to create an artwork referencing a DreamCatcher but with a combination of European techniques combined with something organic and raw. This was a very slow work that built over time. The finishing touch was the Shisha mirrors which gave the work as special 'something'. I love the combination of the running stitch with the Vintage embroidered collar. To me it evokes difference yet similarity; a sense of shared humanity and culture.
