About this project

These pieces explore the materials essences of objects through repair - commonalities and differences in what we use to repair our things. 

The protective elements of tin on a warm wool blanket, glass beads in a glazed bowl, and the wrench part - as yet un-mended.

This work was made during the Cambridge Sustainability Residency (2013).

Red Blanket
Photographer: Bridget Harvey
This blanket provided warmth and protection to the user. After moths attacked it, I fixed it with recycled tin patches, mimicking the protectiveness of the blanket with this material juxtaposition.
