Sat 5th Nov: Patrick Wolf for Jo Whiley Part 1
Two weeks ago Patrick Wolf asked me to make him something special to wear for the new Jo Whiley music show on Sky Arts. He wanted it to be black and white to fit to the look of the UK tour outfits coupled with info from the producer that it would be shot thru crystals I decided to blend the two ideas. I had one day so I ran around 2nd hand shops finding fur to replicate Patrick's current penchant for taxidermy and wearing animals .......... disassembling a chandelier and collecting up crystals from my own hoards. Here is the finished piece which is intended to hang as a decoration on his microphone stand and then double up as a neckpiece.......... I think it looks really nice on the head too!
