artist and a twig

We have been very blessed the last week to have an artist - Trevor Flinn - stay at our home as part of an arts project called "twig" which is funded by Acre and Regional Arts Victoria.
Trevor is staying at four different properties over 4 months and each week he is at a property he is to create "something" with what he finds around the place.  On the Friday night he hosts a "twig" at the farm and the works are shown as well as a fire and food.
Ours was last friday night and it was great - great friends, not that great weather but there was a lovely warm fire as well as soup, fresh cows milk in champagne glasses as well as a green drink in shot glasses.

Here are two of the things he made - the first is from ibis feathers which he wove into the mat that usually sits on the back of the ute.  The second is from old ear tags from the cows - very creative!
