Last year I did a commission for some ‘leaf’ gates for the opening of a new viewing platform at the recently landscaped area in the grounds of the Forth Valley Hospital, Larbert. The idea was to have a variation on cutting the ribbon, so the leaves hung across the walkway then swung open when the ribbon was pulled. For extra effect the ribbon was attached to a willow heart.
Next month I am taking part in a pop up gallery in Cumnock so I am looking for something quick to make but big in effect so I thought of the leaves. A quick trawl through my images produced these reminders which I took when I did the original commission.
