Searles and Israel are fibre textile artists highly
skilled in object making. This construction of
sticks, twigs and handmade threads embodies
their collaboration and is imbued with a sense of
coastal location and liveliness. Searles and Israel
are aunt and nephew who have worked closely
for 20 years but until now have never actually
collaborated. They are using this exciting
opportunity to present a unique work that
demonstrates their collaborative skills and ideas.
