Abulfazel’s silhouette in Flame Blue


Christmas To-Do list and Abulfazel’s silhouette in Flame Blue

Amongst the many Christmas orders I made and delivered in time for the festive season this year, I found time to make a special silhouette for a little boy called Abulfazel and his mother Fahima, who I met at a local playgroup. They are from from Iran, seeking refugee status and have been in detention centres since their arrival. Fahima, a gently spoken woman was then taken in by a local convent of sisters in Albert Park, she’s unable to work until her status has been decided. If she was deported back to Iran, she feared her violent ex-husband and his family.

Her little boy was the same age as my Tom, it brought home to me how lucky we are to have so much – freedom, possessions, choices. I hoped that the little keepsake of her son would be up in her new home here one day soon.
