Hunter & Collector


I have been slowly working through ideas on the theme of Hunter & Collector for over 2 years now. The work involves using found  and vintage objects to inspire and be used in the textiles. Circles form a major feature for the work.   I have shown a circle woven with several soumack techniques to add details and the fine details on the surface are couched down. Embroidery techniques often combine in my work for added details as the quality of the stitch enables me to use threads as an embellishment for the surface which are not limited by the vertical and horizontal lines of the woven structure.

These jewel embroideries shows how I am exploring the theme through found jewels and embellishments stitched directly to the felted vintage blanket.
