Pom Pom Rocher

Group Show CURIO CURIA 2017
Castlefield Gallery

49 x 38 x 49cm
100% Acrylic Wool

Pom Pom Rocher was created with a technique traditionally used to make baby pom pom blankets, but contrasts the constrictions within domestic craft techniques, which usually have pre planned patterns. Marie takes what most see as the final outcome, the blanket and has developed a modular system to build 3D woollen sculptures and forms.

Pom Pom Rocher is made up of 21 layers, the top being 1 pom pom and the bottom a blanket of 21. It has the ability to subtly "grow" when exhibited with layers being added each day.
