Tapestry of Life

Tapestry of life,  October Installation, Glass and mixed media
Life is like a gigantic Tapestry, it begins with great anticipation as the pattern takes shape; the gathering of threads of glorious colours and then the addition of contrasting sombre tones. The story of the Tapestry is started with great hope in our heart.

As the project grows the delight in the work brings great joy, sadness may follow as understood by each of us as we journey through life and the tapestry is put on hold. Eventually though, like life we once again gather the threads and continue on.
The Tapestry is intricate, full of the complexities that befall us in life.

And my Tapestry? It is far from done as I have too much to achieve

Eunice Wake

Originally I started working with textiles over the years I have tried a lot of mediums in art before I discovered glass. I began creating Leadlight in 1981 with individual designs for local and interstate clients. During this time I began exploring Kiln Fired Glass with painting, fusing and slumping. Glass in various forms e.g. bowls, platters, free standing objects to wall hangings. Over the years I have displayed work in selected galleries including Buckland Gallery Beechworth, Mulgrave Gallery Melbourne, The Art Room Hyde Park S.A. and Bunyong VIC. I have a great passion for glass and enjoy totally working with this medium. I am continually going to work shops in major capital cities through out Australia to learn new techniques and ideas. My art exists in the state of evolution so there is unlimited possibilities for the future.
