    What an artist you are, Mo! Just stunning…

    agree that this is “excruciatingly beautiful” and “one of your best”. I can imagine it transporting souls or tiny beings of light

    Oh my goodness that is so beautiful! And I’m glad to have found you again, your site’s link fell off my list for some unknown reason.

    This is a story wanting to be told! What a perfect combination of materials and your gifts. I’ve never seen toad skin used for anything but toads before.

      thanks for the good words Cindy, cane toads were introduced to Australia in 1935 by the sugar cane industry in an attempt to control the native grey-backed cane beetle but they have become a pest, here’s a link to more info

    This is a stunning piece. x

    • Mo Crow says:

      thanks Judy, The Toad Moon and the Moon Ladder were both asides from the main project of getting the crow book finished this year, neither really worked on it’s own but have made a new sense now that they are stitched together
