From seagulls to parrots and cockatoos. I’ve just moved to a quaint wooden house on top of a hill somewhere near the Dandenong Ranges. Quite a sea change after being so used to life near the beach. Thus explains why I have been creatively dormant for the past two months. Luckily, I have been slowly getting my groove back and started to make the Hollow Tree Library even though the house is still packed with a jumble of unopened moving boxes.
The Hollow Tree Library is made from a piece of driftwood I found in Altona Beach. The mushrooms are made from paper clay and actually glow in the dark. I hope I can capture the glow of the mushrooms when I take photos of the finished piece.
Here’s a view of the back of the tree. Although the leaves look real, let’s just say I don’t need to worry about it changing its autumn colours. O yeah, there’s a smattering of ladybugs too.
I still don’t know what to put in this new bell jar theme. I’ll figure it out soon. Stay tuned!
