I came back to start work all fresh today and found that my work was all over the floor it was firmly fixed and so the only thing that I can think is that a child played with it and accidentally pulled the work down.
It was very frustrating but after all, Furzey is a garden with visitors of all ages, this experience highlighted that I need to get a sign made asap to let visitors know that the things that I am creating work in the gardens. I think that the shape now looks quite a cocoon-like, but without a sign, there was no point in me rebuilding so I moved it into a safe area so that I could work on it again later.
The autumnal leaves are so beautiful and inspired me to create a new piece of work, as I started making a shape emerged and encourage me to create something that might bring a smile to visitors faces. It is not likely to last that long as wind, rain and overly zealous gardeners cutting the grass will all be a factor as to how long it is there but that is part of the joy of creating ephemeral art it doesn’t last very long
