Wow.. So Term 2 here we go again.. more time to explore and play with the mediums we love to use and trial all the time..
Mine: Harakeke, Muka and fidgety little things like that which take a lot of time, patience and effort to get from A to B. Like most things. Haha. 🙂
Don’t we all love the laws of life. Live, Love, Laugh and Learn as much as possible.
Exploring art has taught me a lot about myself and living life:
1)You can only take things one step at a time.
2)There is only so much you can plan and prepare for and
3)learn to compromise because things won’t always turn out how you want them, so adapt.
So while I sit here typing and thinking about all the harakeke I harvested 2 days ago that I’ve been wanting to prepare since then (but been too busy with other things) , I know I will get it done this weekend .. Because good things take time..lol.. and sometimes you just have to wait and Yes I’m a bit cheesy quoting things off the mainland cheese ad.. Haha.. But that’s just me.. I like doing that..
Here is just a small slideshow of what I’ve been up to lately.. prepping harakeke and muka tags there is also an example of a couple neckpieces that I have made out of these materials along with copper wire and taaniko thread. I’ve been working on the 2 neckpieces for the last 2 years (and they are still in progress)..
Hope you enjoy..
Tune in next time for the Update with the progress of this mahi..
