Daphne's Glove: Jeanette McCulloch

“A name and a glove, both intimate personal objects.
The inside of a glove holds the memory of a unique palm print, a lifeline, palmistry, astrology, astronomy and the stars above.
Imagine an amateur stargazer looking upwards and noting down on a gloved hand, observations of the night time sky. Later to be embroidered. As daylight disrobes, each glove becomes an embroidered braille constellation, a tactile reminder of that which can no longer be seen.”

  1. What a beautiful idea to transform the glove. I so love the sparkle of its stars and can imagine that I am the one who looks at it from above and sees the myriad. A piece of art!
