hands project


i’d love your help

as you probably know, i’m currently working on a body of work centred around the “vessel”

the vessel has become a metaphor for me that describes the importance of family and the passing down of family stories

as a “side story”, as i weave my vessels, i realise how much i miss my mum’s hands and how much a mother’s hands do.  as a result i am compiling a collection of photographs of hands.  the only rules of this project are that the hands belong to either a mum or a grandmother, or both.

i have documented the details here, and have created a “hashtag” type project on instagram (you’ll find me there as @sammiam)

looking forward to seeing your #mothershands
