Tunturi is the Finnish word used to describe the mountains of northern Finland.

This work is a part of the ‘Women of influence’ theme which takes a fresh look at the art of crochet by imprinting doilies from my grandmothers onto porcelain. In these pieces I’ve also used doilies borrowed from friends and other family members.

These doilies represent the people who are as intricately involved in my life, as I am in theirs.  As with a mountain range we go through life’s ups and downs together but even in the deepest valleys and most difficult mountains we must climb there is always light which brings hope. The joy of being on the mountain tops is always sweeter when shared with friends and family.

This piece was recently shown at the Claybodies exhibition at the Form Gallery. It is now for sale in the Handmade shop.
