Sally was away in Tibet for our last meeting so we were treated to a look at her travel diary
this time.Packed as usual with her lovely observations in drawings, photos and words.
She had even pressed some flowers.She said they had been lucky to see a blue Tibetan poppy in flower .It dies once it seeds and is only able to grow above 12,000ft.
She purchased this purse while there ,which is worn on a belt and holds very little!
Amber ,coral and turquoise are used in these pieces usually.It is quite weighty to carry about.
They travelled about in cars on good roads as evidenced by her sketches in a concertina book, done as they sped along.
As usual she collected lots of ephemera and now has to decided how it will be used in new work.A scroll perhaps?
