Busts inspired by Renaissance terracottas. These contemporary women wear Aran sweaters and have jewellery with good luch charms.
"...these faes seem ‘earthed’ to their world through soft yarns of wool; the
luminescence and texture of skin, its sheen and warmth; the ripples of hair; the gold of jewellery.
These evoke the materialities of traditional ballad language – the shining rings, bells, mantles,
cups, and jewels exchanged between fairy lovers, sisters, daughters, mothers." Sarah Dunnigan
