A tribute to my grandmother who was a great embroiderer (and taught me embroidery at an early age) but whose hands became arthritic later in life, making it difficult for her to continue sewing.

wizard rabbit
Photographer: own image
My first glove puppet, I allowed it to develop organically from the materials I had to hand, but with a rabbit in mind. It contains remnants of older pieces of work, as well as reworked waste materials.

wicked bunny (bunny catcher)
Photographer: own image
It may be a rabbit and then again it may just be something disguised as one in order to trap smaller rabbits. Materials include wire, wax and some tiny rabbits detached from a bag I bought in Japan many years ago.
