Commissioned by The Woodland Trust, in partnership with Ruth Thompson we remade the Durham Miner. For greater strength and durability we used a metal frame, I wove the head and hands with wire, and we used oak strips for his clothing. He has proved very popular for photo opportunities and is a mascot to a local running club.
I am very excited to be one of four artists commissioned for Durham Cathedral's Open Treasure Project, Recreating The Community. I am to produce a piece inspired by the 'Cuthbert Silks' and the coffin of St Cuthbert. This is to be a felt cloak. I shall be updating you on it's progress.
So how has my commission been developing?
