Simmer felt she was neither one thing nor the other and didn’t fit in. Where others exuded confidence, elegance or cool, she felt clumsy, flat-footed and clownish. She was mystified when she was chosen as the prima ballerinas companion, but it was as if the dancers moves controlled Simmers limbs, and purely by association she became sure footed, graceful and controlled. Knowing she could be both gawky and exquisite she embraced both sides of her character.
The Joy of Gracefulness
Part of the Army of Joys Collection
Simmer was a discarded table decoration, and is now embellished with collected feathers, textiles, jewellery, dried flower components and beads. She has also been dressed with decoupage, paint and silver leaf.
All my pieces are individual and one-off - as I only work with recycled and reclaimed objects I never know what I am going to find. If you are looking for something particular, please ask - and I'll start looking!
