Davies artist statement:

‘A pompom is traditionally an adornment, or an accessory. It should bounce and dangle flirtatiously. The supersizing of this object disrupts these qualities – it becomes gross, heavy and vulgar. This draws attention to the absurdity and excessiveness of the endeavour, placing the frivolity of ornamentation in dialogue with notions of taste and excess’
