    Beautiful, Mo. Displaying with the worn wood adds to the potency. It, the wood, almost resembles a bow.

    So much love held in between each stitch……as always, the stars are a special favourite. It looks so soft already so I imagine over time it will soften up even more. Fingers x’d it sells quickly for you and tbh it is my favourite piece in the exhibition.

    Oh Mo, it is perfection with that branch – thank you lemon scented gum for sharing! It is a beautiful memory keeper and talisman holder- a very special piece…

    Hi MC – congrats on the fact that your work has been accepted into the exhibition – a powerful piece with many memories. I had to smile about the stick that was gifted by the lemon scented gum tree. Go well. B

  5. (((Mo))) – beautiful, strong, powerful work – congratulations on a wondrous achievement

    Stitched beauty with love………………..

  7. Marti says:

    The magical quality of this wonderful work is so perfectly aligned with the way it is displayed; the branch brings a powerful talisman quality to the forefront. The urge to want to touch this beauty, stroke the leather and run fingers over each and every star and knot evokes such a strong sense of love for the materials and spirit in the making…

  8. Liz A says:

    always I love your list of materials … that, in and of itself, is fascinating

    better yet is the 3D display … if I were there I’d have my glasses off (the better to leverage my nearsightedness) … circling to see all sides …

    What a transformation. I’ve loved watching your process. Brilliant hanging on that perfect branch.

  10. Peter Webb says:

    A potent piece of work connecting many threads of energies through your conscious, loving stitches. As artist you bring value and life to your works, connecting the mysteries with love. Hence the power. How love brings life, and returns life, to the forgotten or ignored.
    When animal skin and vegetable sinew from Nettle are connected with love in the name of Honesty, magic has appeared.
    Thanks for sharing your special talents with us.
    Love to you and Rod

    as always Mo, everything in nature speaks to you. Be it the branch or the rotted silk. Everything in your list of materials spoke to you and asked to be a part of the talisman. Things have a way of finding their way to you at just the right time. They are drawn to you. I know that sometimes they come to you and they come too soon or too quietly and aren’t ready yet to be part of the bigger project. But they wait quietly for your hand to remember them when the time is right. And you always know the right time. “Collectors Choice” yes.

    the image in a large gallery space….eeeeeeeee…..and i agree with Liz,
    the materials list is like a poem
    Love and Love,

  13. Nancy says:

    I’ve been here a few times, looking. The beauty of this piece paired with the Talisman of the lemon scented gum tree is just right. A tactile piece that calls the viewer to explore, gently with respectful fingertips. Congrats Mo!

    How perfect on the branch…thinking a lot about “memory keeper, talisman holder, go bag for an iphone .” What our phones might be, how we might use them…
