'Korembi' Sacred Leaf Vessels

About this project

Fay participated in a Craftspace collective ‘pop-up’ installation event in Birmingham. In direct response to the date (Hiroshima Remembrance Day) and space (St Philips, Cathedral square) Fay created a Japanese ‘Ema’ wishing tree as a nature platform to open dialogue and record the public responses in regards to their own wishes, hopes and dreams. This work developed to create ‘light’ vessels inspired by Bali (Indonesia), where Frangipani flora is used in everyday offerings, blessings and prayer.
