Each year, the CRF hold a club competition. In 2010 we were each given a sealed envelope with a photo inside - we were to use this as our inspiration! Here is the pot-luck photo I was given.
Perspective, colour, shapes, opening, depth, intrigue, layers... so many ideas! I knew I wanted to make something like a Matryoshka (russian doll), and for it to have a geometric feel - nested boxes. However, I was quite a novice with limited experience to draw on! But one thing I had learnt was to felt a ball... Then, looking closely at this picture, you see there is a ball on the table - perfect! Here is my interpretation of this photo. I'm proud to say I won the club competition with this piece, and got to keep the 'Ashes' for a year!
