A Very Special Wedding (Cage) Announcement

I am very delighted that my work ‘Wedding Cage’ has a new home within the Crafts Council Collection, London. Other supporting work, Ring-a-ring-a-roses – and Wedding Cages’ Cast-offs (in four parts) have also been housed there.

Wedding Cage is woven from two polyester, nylon hand/home-made 1970’s Wedding Dresses. The work was originally commissioned and made for the ‘Lookout’ 1998 exhibition programme, supported by Waterstones Bookshop, Brighton and Thames & Hudson publishers. The exhibition space was Waterstones shop window, formally in North Street Brighton.

Following the works’ debut ‘Lookout’ exhibition Wedding Cage has been exhibited extensively in a range of solo and group exhibitions, nationally and internationally, including   ‘Out of the Closet’, Sotheby’s London UK. ‘The Unexpected’, Sotheby’s New York, USA (both curated by Janice Blackburn). ‘The Absent Wearer’, University of Essex Gallery, UK. ‘Intimate Foundations’ (My first major touring Solo Exhibition) UK venues, ‘Brighton Fringe Festival 1999’, ‘Talente 2000’. Handwerkskammer; Munchen. ‘Woken with a Kiss’. Hastings Museum and Art Gallery UK and ‘Merging Cultures, Merging Arts’, National Gallery of the Cayman Islands.

  1. Looks as incredible & relevant now as she did when you first created her. What an amazing journey you both have been on since then and I’m so delighted to hear of her new home. Many congratulations my dear friend Lucy, always will be extremely proud of you. xx
