Last night I began to work on my bunting project for JIWAR. I have been collecting business cards, tourism pamphlets, small maps, etc since I arrived in Spain, with the intention of somehow using them in the banners.
On my way to the Berga workshop yesterday, I discovered a little store which sold large round hole punches. That is what I decided to used to cut all of these circles last night in my studio and then combined them with coloured paper which I brought from Canada.
So, these are images of my first small work!
Now, I like this second attempt even better. I really want to incorporate some of the amazing patterning, mosaics, and tile work that exist here in Barcelona (it is the city of Antoni Gaudi after all!). The hole punches that I have used in this bunting, I brought from Canada – amazingly they match the pattern on the glass doors of my studio perfectly! Have a look.
