Great Great Aunt Jessie's Jacket

Steel and forged steel
120 x 64 x 44cm

When I was seventeen I was given a silk jacket that had been embroidered by my Great Great Aunt Jessie. I was told that she used to paint oil paintings wearing it! I have luckily not used it for any of my messy painting activities. The sculpture is to do with trying to find the spirit of the jacket and is a direct memorial to her.
