“Defying all odds, my very being was made possible with delicately, dedicated breaths of life. My creator, Lucy Hardcastle, once sang gleefully, ‘I like to inject happiness into the things I create!’ Fragile and flexible, I materialised through the manipulation of molten glass, a taffy-transparent blob, continuously, rotating elegantly on a stick. Rhythmically, with each timed-breath, I am shaped, I am stretched, and I am pulled. Slowly, I solidify, billowing into a glossy-pillow-balloon. You see, I am not yet complete without my bulbous crown. Soft-to-touch of velvety-allure, a simple ball dressed in flock, metamorphosed with magnetic, magical dust. Together, I represent the playful joys of life.
I am a creation by Lucy Hardcastle and I come from the Pillow and Ball series.”
