The Way Home I
Corrugated Histories by Auckland and Wanaka based Artist, Gilly Sheffield.
From Gilly Sheffield's Sage Green Series
Made from waxed cord, mercerised thread and iron rescued from Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland.
This beautiful albeit bruised and battered iron was rescued from an old bungalow in Tamaki Makaurau Auckland. The house was derelict but I could see that it was once a well loved family home. So with this iron I have used my weaving to celebrate its past life - and the lives of those who have lived beneath it. I wonder what stories it could tell!!
