Pomegranate
Barbara Weeks
Medium: wool and silk, felted and quilted
Pomegranate. A quirky shape resting in the hand, the rich surface of the skin iridescent with hints of gold. Cut open, the juice flows sensuously, reveals the often asymmetrical arrangement of the arils. Exotic, sumptuous, delicious, packed with vitamins and good stuff. Intense colour, absorbing textures and fascinating details lead me on a year long investigation, one a month. Fine merino wool and silk fibres, recycled sari silk, the materials of my work. The wet felting process demands that I engage intimately with the qualities in these natural fibres. Working with my hands is liberating, risky and yet calming, serendipitous, contemplative.
