My “Tang Dynasty “ Horse
Having lived in Hong-Kong, China for 4 years and having visited Mainland China several times, I developed an interest on studying some Chinese dynasties, being Tang Dynasty one of them. It was considered a Golden Age of Chinese arts and Culture.My Cookie, in form of a horse horse, was inspired by a 1500 years old antique. Although the original horses were moulded having, therefore, a hollow body, my cookie was pipped directly into a delicious “vanilla “ flavoured dough. It was free hand piped with coloured royal icing, and finished with some painting to accomplish an old look.

My name is Linda Hackett and I live in Dublin, Ireland with my husband, two daughters and 4 cats.
I have always been interested in all mediums of Art but before my Sugar-craft journey my passion was creating ornate costume jewellery pieces.My Sugar-craft journey began with evening classes in our local school and from then I have been addicted. My teacher at the time saw something in me and encouraged me to take the PME Professional Diploma courses in Sugar-craft, Sugar Flowers and Royal Icing. I completed these courses and passed each one receiving certificates and gaining my Masters in 2015.
I have been honoured to be invited to participate in several collaborations all over the world, creating pieces that I normally wouldn’t have the opportunity to make and having my work featured alongside some of my Sugar-craft idols is a dream come through. The highlight for me, is when some of my creations have been featured in several prestigious Cake Magazines. Next step is to turn all the skills I’ve learned along the way into a business.

The Four Symbols (Chinese: 四象; pinyin: Sì Xiàng, literally meaning “four images”), are four mythological creatures appearing among the Chinese constellations along the ecliptic, and viewed as the guardians of the four cardinal directions. These four creatures are also referred to by a variety of other names, including “Four Guardians”, “Four Gods”, and “Four Auspicious Beasts”. They are the Azure Dragon of the East, the Vermilion Bird of the South, the White Tiger of the West, and the Black Tortoise (also called “Black Warrior”) of the North. Each of the creatures is most closely associated with a cardinal direction and a color, but also additionally represents other aspects, including a season of the year, a virtue, and one of the Chinese “five elements”(wood, fire, earth, metal, and water). Each has been given its own individual traits and origin story. Symbolically, and as part of spiritual and religious belief, these creatures have been culturally important across countries in the East Asian cultural sphere.

My inspiration pic – nek Chand rock garden creation.Chandigarh’s Rock Garden is unique: it’s the surreal fantasy of the much-missed Nek Chand (1924–2015), a local transport official who, starting in 1957, spent almost 20 years personally creating more than 2000 sculptures using stones, debris and other discarded junk that was left over from the 50-odd villages destroyed in order to build the city of Chandigarh. Today, entering this fantastical, 7-hectare (18-acre) sculpture garden is like falling down a rabbit hole into the labyrinthine interior of one man’s imagination.
Materials used in the construction of the garden range from concrete and steel drums to light switches, broken bathroom sinks, terracotta scrap and bicycle frames. Highlights include a legion of dancing girls made from broken glass bangles and a graceful arcade of towering arches with dangling rope swings. Nek Chand worked at night to begin with, to keep his eccentric masterpiece from the prying eyes of the city authorities, before they eventually realised the worth of his project and came on board, helping him to expand the site to its current proportions.
