Kings, Queens and Buttons

Installation time……a bit traumatic but got there in the end with expertise from Tim and Ruth.
Six poles of teasels are now hung from the roof of the Tithe barn at Cotley Nr Chard. The title Kings, Queens, and Buttons represents the size of teasels that were cut. The harvest started with the biggest, then medium sized and finally the smallest teasels on the plant. The green teasels, on the pole which represents 1940s, form a significant curve (which happened because of the way the pole was lying at home, and the fact that the green teasels are much heavier as they are full of seeds), and appears to be very much a living thing…..growing and expanding. This pole is also shedding lots of teasel seeds all over the barn floor……the mice will have fun!
