burdenwithcare has had two firings and a final wax finish – still thinking about her headress whether to stick with the jute or go with something a bit more decorative – perhaps leather but I also have a huge range of vintage linen threads which could also work.

She’s very beautiful Veronica, I like everything about her. There is a sense of poignancy. The jute works, but I suspect so could leather or vintage threads …
It appears as though she is being manipulated or forced into following orders from someone or something much more powerful than her…. perhaps in a robotic sense! But the fragility and sadness that you have portrayed in her expression is profoundly exquisite! Another lovely piece Ronnie!
Thanks Anna I shall let this one sit for awhile 🙂
Thanks Jacquie appreciate your comments
My god, that is just incredible, such a powerful piece. Congrats to you,
Amazing piece of art. I like the jute.
thanks Jac – hope your exhibition is getting the attention it deserves
thanks Steven – I am thinking the jute will stay at the moment – but she hasn’t been promised anywhere yet so I have time to sit and reflect – luxury really !
Hi V, I love her. So, beautiful, delicate and a portrayal of an immense vulnerability. Perhaps, she has is no voice and is apart of the marginalised people of the world. Well done. Kx
Wow, very impressive!
Thanks Kirsty – yes it was the vulnerable that I was thinking about (we in this country have too many children locked up in detention centres because of some kind of irrational fear of difference). x
thanks – I am looking forward to having a browse through your site 🙂
Actually, I watched a docu on the detention centers recently in AU – highly confronting for oneself – a marginalised people. It is certainly portrayed in this piece. Kx
it is truly frightening that so many think this is okay to treat anyone in this manner let alone children (words fail me)…
Such a haunting beauty in this piece Veronica and I love hearing you process your thoughts through the work.
thanks Patti – always great to hear your thoughts
I always see movement in your work; the turn of a head, the glance of an eye. Al those subtle little movements where expression says more than words.
Thanks for that feedback – it is the stillness of clay that I fight against – so I am quite chuffed that you think I have
managed to introduce some subtle movement – thank you
Wow. Tender, tender. The fragility of a tiny bird. Gorgeous.
thanks Karen as always
