On taking down my work on the Isles of Wight yesterday, I visited Ian form the Wood Emporium, based in Cows.
A project connects with another, uninterrupted flow of thoughts, emotions and stories collected and shared with others.
I found Ian online while looking for a new spindle for the project.
On Visiting, I was told about an old oak tree carbon dated 3300BC, a purple Heart and a lignum vitae, about traditional crafts from Tibet, Turkey and Russia.
I chose three very special spindles for the project and will share their stories with you.
A Love story with wood, earthy smells and journeys to spin, spin, spin.
