Knitted Yarn Tubes

'Vines' was my first exhibited piece of work, which was on display in the Space CRAFT Gallery, Belfast, in the summer of 2012. The piece was created using multiple tubes of knitted yarn, hung and left to gather on the floor.

This project was inspired by walking down a side street in Rome and seeing the most beautiful Italian house completely encased in long, thick, intertwining vines. I wished to develop a piece which expressed how visually attractive a simple shape can become. My work has always been very much inspired by my travels, and I have been fortunate enough to see some truly amazing places so far. Long may to travelling continue, for the sole reason of creative inspiration of course...!

I was very honored to be a part of this exhibition, as Space CRAFT is a place which I love to visit regularly. It is a shop, gallery, and exhibition area, owned and managed by the Craft and Design Collective, which is an  independent, non-profit organisation who aim to raise the profile of artists/designers/makers. Their ever-changing collections have something for everyone, from inspiring exhibitions, to the shop which has items ranging from the modest to the more luxurious price tag-ideal for a present with a difference which doesn't break the bank! If you wish to visit Space CRAFT it is situated up the escalator at The Fountain Centre, College Street right in the heart of Belfast City Centre.
