Measuring the Arbitrary Passing of Time
CLOCKS

   My fascination with clocks grew without me realising it, and it seems that my ideas are drawn from my personal history. Pieces of clothing, photographs and who knows what is next. A memoire in clocks. Check in here to see what is happening.

MAGGIE’S TEE-SHIRT

A dear friend make me a tee-shirt many years ago, and I couldn’t let the image go.  I think the chenille work looks like the turtle is swimming under water.

MAGGIE’S DRESS

Tearing up a dress you have loved is not easy.  Now my Italian linen dress from Rome has a new life.  I really like the stray threads in the chenille area.

SAUBLE BEACH
Lake Huron

      “The stones in these creations are from the shores of Lake Huron, specifically from Sauble Beach.  Sauble Beach is on the east side of Lake Huron and south of the Bruce Peninsula. It is the traditional land of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation.”

It is likely that many of you know Sauble Beach as a summer beach destination with great distances of sand for sunbathing, building sandcastles and generally having a carefree time.
The pebbles that I picked up on Sauble Beach began their life as part of much the much bigger rocks that form the Niagara Escarpment.  Sauble Beach is on the west side of the Niagara Escarpment that extends from Niagara Falls, to the tip of the Bruce Peninsula.
When the glaciers advanced and hit the escarpment, instead of grinding them down they went up and over them.  Seems amazing to me that they went up and over as the glaciers can grind down granite and the escarpments rock layers are not nearly as strong as granite.  So the west side of the escarpment, the Huron slope, and the Huron fringe, including Sauble Beach have glacial deposits left behind by retreating glaciers.  So my best guess is that the pebbles that I have made my pieces from are predominantly dolomite and granite, maybe some basalt, dumped by glaciers that retreated 17,000 years ago.
All in all, I find it a very sobering thought that the pebbles that I pick up did not just appear overnight, but have a long, ancient really, past. I am picking up geological history without really giving it a thought.  I hope you enjoy wearing these pieces as much as I enjoy creating them.
