Now you see it and now you don’t. Penny Burnfield’s piece as it looked in the exhibition and the dust it left behind when the little seeds.stone shapes were packed away.

Marylin Rathbone – The 100 metre dash – hope you can see the little coloured dashes in the braid? I love the label!

  1. No, this piece is not by Paddy, Viv. I'll post her image for you in a new posting. It celebrates her own last 50 years. She and I lived together when we were doing our degree at Brum years ago.
