"Field of Moonlight Blue"
Enamel on Copper & Manipulated Textiles
Collaboration between Ruth Ball & Mary Brodie


Hi, I cannot believe it is Friday already ! is my interpretation for "Moon".

This piece is part of a series of collaborative works combining enamel with textiles. I have teamed up from time to time with my great friend and colleague Mary Brodie.

Her textile pieces are very inspiring. In this piece, the colours evoke the sense of deep nigh time stillness. The hues of midnight and the glints of moonlight are shadowed over the patterns in this areial view of a landscape, I thought it would just about fit for this weeks theme ! ....not essentially a "Moon" but how about an impression of "Moonlight".......

( The textiles are recessed into the frame and the enamels fit uppermost, not sure if it is apparent from the image.. )

This panel and the others in the series are currently on their way to an exhibition in Finland !
I am an invited artist alongside 16 other British enamellers in a group exhibitions organized by Finnish Enameller Ulla Huttunen.

The events open at The Kenkavero Craft Gallery in Mikkeli, Finland – 9th September - 28th October 2007 . Then travel to Kuopio Design Academy, Kupio, Finland – 5th November – 15th December 2007. The final highlight is the show at the prestigious The Craft Museum of Finland in Jyvaskyla, Finland – 22nd December 2007 – 1st March 2008
