Rare Notions
Background
Phiona Richards creates interactive book sculptures and intriguing jewellery using traditional needlework techniques.

"Having been brought up with a ‘make do and mend’ mentality I tend to collect and gather materials including books near the end of their existence and regenerate them into pleasing tactile structures using a variety of needlework techniques. Although they appear to be fragile and delicate they are quite robust and interaction becomes a therapeutic experience on many sensory levels."
