Smeuse Mobile I
Smeuse Mobile I by Annemarie O’Sullivan is part of the ‘Plant Explorations’ collection, facilitated by The New Craftsmen. Earlier this year, The New Craftsmen invited a select group of craftspeople to the Economic Botany Collections at Kew Gardens to examine and creatively respond to a myriad of objects and their narratives. The collection delves into humanity’s ever resourceful and ingenious making traditions with plants. The Smeuse Mobile I is inspired by the irregular, skewed shapes of the fields Annemarie walks through and the ever-changing hedges that enclose them. ‘Smeuse’ is an old Sussex word to describe the gap in the base of a hedge made by the frequent passage of small animals. These delicate pieces float around each other, continually redefining themselves in the space they share. Light and shadow slowly shifts, evoking the low evening sun as it plays through the hedges.
