‘Magpie Goose’ sculpture
upcycled materials, wire, coloured wool and beads.
25cm x 17cm x 40cm
These creatures evolve with an incredibly distinct expression. The position of the armature, then bound with wadding and fabric and finally feathers and beads, is a process that almost creates itself. A distinct character is always arriving unexpectedly from such a muddle of materials! In fact, after speaking to many private collectors and galleries, people often tell me that they’re certain that the creatures fly about and dance at night while everyone is sleeping.
Inspired by the Australian wildlife, Janie creates an array of animals and birds available at exhibitions, craft fairs and to commission.
