When Rebekah invited me to this collaboration, I was over the moon!! And, have been floating ever since!!
My piece is called Mysterious Mother Nature , firstly due to my love of flowers and plants, and secondly, because Mother Nature can be so shocking as well as peaceful, all-giving yet vengeful, calm one moment, violent the next. I have made her stern looking and hiding behind a mask, as if she has a secret or a warning, but in contrast she gives us beauty.
I based my piece on the work carried out by designer Bink who runs Pearls & Swine, a company that makes surreal hats and avant-garde hair accessories. I wanted to combine fondant, gum paste and rice paper to get different textures and airy feeling to the cake.
I hope you like it. Emily.
