I was commissioned to remake my “Hat in a Box” as the original is in my own collection and not for sale. It was originally made it 2004 and this revisiting of the process was interesting as I had to work out again how to make it. Here Ellie took a photo of me shaping the tops of the legs in the final stages.
I came across this photograph taken in warmer weather back in 2012, and have brought it here to share today with the original notes about it. It’s hard to believe that there will be days like this again when someone will be walking through the wet mud in bare feet, collecting shells or stones when the tide is out. Hard to believe when we are in the middle of a snow storm today in below freezing weather!

Fog Clinging to Blomidon, Viewed from Medford, Nova Scotia – Tide Out
We have the highest tides in the world in the Bay of Fundy (16 meters, 53 feet), so the view is constantly changing. The other evening as the sun was setting the tide was out and the cliff of Blomidon was encapsulated in a shroud of fog, the likes of which we had never seen. We were on the cliffs of Medford at the time. To give you an idea of the expanse, you can see the people walking in the foreground. The tide goes out and comes in at an incredible speed, so walkers have to be very careful not to be caught by incoming tides that cut them off from land.
These girls are carrying bags 3 times bigger than my camera bag! Doing what kids do best, shoelaces untied, daisy chains in the hair, best friends together walking to school in the sun. (Or have they just left home?)
