I’ve been wanting to work with silhouettes of South African animals and this chandelier-mobile gave me the chance.  It is entitled


and is one of a trio that I am exhibiting at The Intellectual Property 2017 Exhibition at The Plant in Station Road, Durban.

I hand-cut the paper panels with a blade and with scissors.  I finished the top and bottom points off with beater blades that ~I once again sourced at my local charity store.  They were mounted with lighting for the exhibition, so fall loosely into the chandelier range.

I enjoy the softness and the spikiness of the springbok form, especially when massed together on the mobile.

I plan to laser cut the pattern in the future – and create these wild-life mobiles in more durable material.
