Spirit weaves

The first Spirit weave was created as a temporary installation in the Walled Garden at Delapre Abbey, Northampton (see below).

Spirit weave III have since created Spirit weave II for a tree in Salcey Forest. This weave was inspired by the patterns of the ash bark, developed into a 10' figure woven in stainless steel which appears to be emerging from the tree. Permanently installed on this tree the figure may eventually be absorbed by the tree as it grows.


Spirit weave IIISpirit weave III (stainless steel and copper) was completed at the 2011 Open Studios exhibition in Barton Hall, Kettering.

Spirit weave IDelapre Abbey Walled garden is backed by woodland and has doors (now unused) in one wall which originally led from the garden into the woods. Inspired by the thought of the spirit of the woodland passing through the locked door to gain access to the garden I wove a part-figure in copper wire leaf patterns emerging from the door.
