Tree of Life | In the making

Here are some images of my Tree of life in the making.

This is the piece I submitted to the 2014 Emerging Artist Award and that went on to win me the major award ($2,000 and 6 months to exhibit my work at the gallery).

The tree is made up of many of metres of string tied into hundreds of little knots that hold the crystal base, centre and leaves in place.

It is a design I came up with whilst living in Brazil and experiementing with different macrame techniques.

Thanks again to Craft NSW the wonderful opportunity you offer to emerging artists!
