Stargaze Spiral (2020). 90 cm diameter. Circular unframed wall hanging, rich hand bead & semi-precious stone embellishment and rich hand embroidery. £2000
During this last year I was thrilled to take part in BBC1 ‘Home is Where the Art is’ Series 2, Episode 5. Stargaze Spiral is the piece I created for the show. It’s a wet felted unframed wall hanging, approx. 90cm in diameter. It has over 200 pieces of fabric felted in and rich hand beadwork and embroidery. Though it’s sold, merchandise relating to it is on my webshop. Other work this last 12 months has been focused on tapestry weaving with embroidery, beadwork, knitting and braiding incorporated in the pieces in a variety of ways. I took inspiration from lockdown walks in local urban woodland areas around where I live in York. The awakening of trees and plants was beautiful and gave me plenty of ideas to explore over the Spring months. I also made some pieces, both weavings and felt pods, inspired by remembered sunnier times by sea or water.
