Vintage Blanket, Thread, Batting, Vintage Buttons, 56 cm x 30 cm x 16 cm.
This work was created as a companion piece to Shrine to Teddy No 1. It explores my memory of losing my Teddy Bear while on a trip with my Dad to a local sawmill. I think I was about 3 years old. I was devastated when I realised that the teddy had gone and my Mum found a replacement that looked very similar to ease the pain. This work explores the vulnerability of the infant self which we all continue to hold inside of us.
