This animated earthenware bust is hand-built and decorated in painterly detail. It is a part of Jenny’s ‘knitting pattern folk’ series which explores the figures from her childhood collection of vintage knitting patterns. She sees each piece as a psychological drama, with some unseen narrative enacted within the pose.
