Snow

One of a kind, created January 2010

Height 18ins/45cms


"It was the middle of winter, when the broad flakes of snow were falling around, that a certain Queen sat working at the window, the frame of which was made of fine black ebony; and as she was looking out upon the snow, she pricked her finger and three drops of blood fell upon it."

In January it suddenly became very cold and we woke to find the snow falling. Walking on the heath over the following days became a matter of bare twisted heather and scorched black gorse, snow frozen fine like sugar gradually soiled with the yellow clay soil underneath churned by animal hooves and walkers. I couldn't help thinking about Snow White, frozen in her glass coffin through the winter, the ice inside the glass melting onto her clothes and skin and slowly mouldering and staining them. The stiffness of her body, and her hands slowly metamorphosing as the trees around her insinuated their roots through a crack in the glass. If she had never been found, she might by now have become unrecognisable.

Snow is made from cloth, entirely handstitched and painted. Her dress is stiffened with paint, and embroidered with symbols drawn from her story. Her hands are painted twigs of bare heather from the heath near Sway in the New Forest, drilled and stitched in place.
