Collected wisdom – Mary Hackett

Bottle tops are abandoned residue from a relaxing time with friends or after a hard day’s work, with ‘a hard earned thirst’.  They are abandoned.  These bottle tops are tiny perfect circles for raising and forging (processes used in silversmithing).  Whether left with the printed label and plastic lining intact or stripped of all evidence of their former life, these little circles are given a new persona.  These old counters of indulgence are now blossoms, butterflies, seed pods or bees …….. with magnetism.
