I’ve been going through some of my old artwork and came across a rather handsome dragon…and realised I never uploaded a finished version of my earlier WIP
Wow…I officially haven’t posted anything for like a whole year…actually it might even be longer than that!
New year’s resolution – start posting again!
Everything’s changed its a little bit scary…still lets keep our hopes bright for the future.
Paint and wire writing art
I really thought hard about the colours and fell in love with the blue/green one, a little untypical for a dragon, but fit well…as a useless nugget of info when inverted its blue and pink!
Celebrating the 150th birthday of Alice, these quirky wall hangings make a great gift for the curious minded.
These Wall Mounted Animal Heads are handmade, using various felts and british standard padding. As the name suggests these Feltsidermy are created using mainly felt. Each head is filled with wadding and is backed onto a foam disc giving each head a nice backing board and will hang neatly onto the wall with a small loop on the back.
The Dormouse is complete with hand made artistic gold finish wire glasses.
All materials used are vegan friendly and kind to the environment, the felt itself is made from recycled plastic bottles.
Well, here it is the finished Re-mixed Dimensions collection. I’m so happy with these final pieces, there’re all very different but sit well together. Constructed textiles are amongst my favourites due to how tactile you can make them.
I have to give a hugh thank you to Catherine who modelled for me, she looks amazing.
After initial researching of all the various things I found influential for this project. I started playing with adornment of my own, using different weighted and textured materials and making each piece individually, decorating them by hand or with a sewing machine and arranging each piece onto a stand to create a silhouette I like, then sewing all the various pieces together by hand, so that it may be worn on the body.
These are some constructed textile experiments I’ve played with, I’m quite happy with them and I’ve used a wide range of methods these are fun to make and if you haven’t tried felting before I highly recommend it.
Over the last week I’ve been playing with constructed textiles and thought I’d try laying brass buttons in a dish of latex (so much fun!) It took about 3 days to dry out and when I removed the buttons the latex had imprinted the pattern and taken the colouring from them. Now I can cut them up and use them as buttons.
Conveying layers in different media, and experimenting with how it could be used on the body.
