Two pewter swimmers, a versatile household item can be used as an ice bucket, plant holder or as a coffee table décor item! Or any other item using one’s imagination! These swimmers were inspired by my love of water and my love of swimming as a sport throughout my childhood. The swimmers are strong and fit yet glide easily through the acqua water in a tranquil and peaceful environment.
My love of art and design was nurtured during my childhood years. As a young primary school girl, I used to walk the three blocks to my Thursday art class. Penny Bailie was a kind and loving teacher, who allowed us to explore art in its many forms and shapes ! This love of art provided the inspiration for continuing to do art as a matric subject. How I loved those lessons ! Going to univeristy, marrying and having children somehow put art on the back burner. However, on nearing 40, I started pewter lessons with Sandy Griffiths and so enjoyed those classes ! Pewter is an amazing metal and wonderful to work with but requires loads of time, patience and process. Something we need more of but seldom learn. Corporate life then took over – again and pewter was sidelined. Turning 50 and stepping out of corporate, for a season, has seen me back in class, creating and starting to market my work ! May this sea-son be a long and happy one…
