WORKS ON SLATE
Wilma began making pieces on slate in 2005, when she found a pile of large roof slates that her husband had saved for her. Later she was given several large boxes of smaller slates, which she is now using. These works use wire, glass, old jewelry, bits of hardware, and beads. They hang on the wall with hangers that are attached through the holes in the slate that were originally used for nails that held them to the roof.
