Hundreds-and-thousands Of Toxins

I have a silly, unfinished lot of different projects on the hook these days and then there is the whole ‘real life’ aspect to be dealt with in parallel.

I have mentioned it before and I will more than likely mention it again. As a matter of fact, it’s more or less constantly on the agenda… You see, The Irish Reef exhibition in the Courthouse Arts Centre, Tinahely, Co Wicklow is drawing nearer and nearer and we don’t actually have a toxic reef at the moment, so I raided my family and friend’s plastic bag for re-use stashes so I could get some toxics done by way of eliminating at least some of the toxic gap in the reef exhibition. The bag raid in Belfast was particularly good from a gaudy plastic colour perspective!

At the weekend I actually had the opportunity to give the hook a good toxic whirl and this is what tumbled off it – a cluster of hyperbolic spheres in gaudy colours. Ends needs weaving in and a few more hyperboles will roll off the hook yet, methinks…

Thank you Sinéad, they are a bit on the bright side for my liking, but makes the point about our lifestyle choices so very well!

Hanne, thank you and exactly!

TeeWee, it happens automatically when one keeps an eye on the the tension and uses a slightly smaller hook than would be expected. The colours are unhealthily cool…
