All that’s left to do is to put the curtain together. As the opening is an arch I think I will have to make a hood or covering to bring it altogether but I feel I need to see the curtaining hanging before deciding on the shape. And in order to do that – I need my husband’s assistance as it will require a degree of engineering knowledge. The strips are quite heavy with the glass beads and I have no idea how a big the hooks should be or the diametre of the rod to hold it all up. Luckily my wonderful husband does! So while he did that I went back to creating more combinations. Here’s some of the ones I ended up with.
Soosie is an obsessive maker who resides in her studio everyday with her trusty sidekick and quality controller Delilah Cheese Head Banana Dog – a mini schnauzer who approves with a whimsical woof or disapproves with a gravelly grumble. She has discerning taste. And when both Soosie and Delilah need a pick me up they scoot off to their favourite café in Freo on their bright red Vespa for a coffee or maybe two. No matter what medium Soosie and Delilah work in the colour palette and texture is always inspired by the amazing Western Australian environment. Memories of many camping trips inform the pieces although Delilah doesn’t like camping that much as she gets red dirt in her fur.
