Mary Crabb

This length of hand made cord, interspersed with tags for the First World War years of 1914-16, has 244 knots representing the loss of men to one community and in particular, depicted by one red knot, the loss of Cecil, Mary’s Grandmother’s boyfriend, who did not return at the tragically young age of 18. 

Dawn Susan has worked on themes of remembrance before and the act of passing the knots around the gathering today was very moving. Another life, and another passing through our fingers as shared experience.
