Description: This tetrahedral pyramid’s shape of three equilateral triangles, plus base, symbolises the collaboration of three friends. The written texts (in particular about pyramids, and in general about cooperating, and striving to achieve great heights) were integrated with the hand-beaten fibres, handmade papers, textured weaving and assorted found objects. This created a collage in which the designs on the three individual sides merged together to form an integrated whole.

Created in collaboration with Jill Brose and Sandy Batton.
Selected for display in the “Interwoven Vision’ exhibition at Cooloola Shire Gallery in 2001 and Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens Auditorium in 2002.
Displayed in my solo exhibition “Colourful Language” at Gallery 159 in 2007.
