ForTresses

 

In collaboration with the great poet Olive Broderick, based on her very beautiful poem Rapunzel. Beautiful doesn't do the poem justice but I can't find the words to describe how it touches me.

 

This piece was created for a group exhibition, showcasing the work of the castleward art and craft studios collective and inspired by the Clock tower in Castleward.

 

The clock tower, fortress, fortifying, protecting, imprisioning, femininity, the delicate and the rough, holding in, restricting.

 

 

Olive Broderick's Rapunzel is published in the collection of her poems titled Darkhaired publised by Templar Poetry
