RELICS ON THE WALL.


The inspiration for knitting these relics, came from a relief on a wall in St Magnus' Cathedral Orkney. Through the process of making them, the piece became a picnic. At Gallery 10, I spread it  out on the floor. 
This week I put it up on the wall by the window in the shop, and I love it much more. It seems to inspire narrative more clearly and look older. The skull has been busy luring all sorts of people to the window. The scale of the pieces simultaneously seems friendly and frightening. 
I think I shall keep it this way.

wow - this is really beautiful...
I'd love to visit a complete cathedral created this way, all in stone-gray, except for some colorful stained glass windows probably done in lace ...

What a lovely idea - to make a place of contemplation. And to make a stained glass window in lace would be awesome. It wouldn't have to be a big place....
