Birdsmouth Silk Quilt

Well I can honestly say I've never worked so long on any one piece before but here is my first quilt. The colours are even better in real life. I am very proud of this as I really never believed I could do the whole thing myself. It it made of appliqued and embroidered hand dyed silk pieces. The printed / painted silks are made using cut paper and pressed grasses. Available now at The New Craftsmen

Tate st. Ives

Some bad phone photos of my pieces in the amazing Tate St. Ives show 'That Continous Thing' with Troy Town Art pottery. I am so honoured to be a part of such a brilliant show amongst so many amazing ceramics, elbow to elbow with Peter Voulkos, Ken Price, Gillian Lowndes, Bernard Leach, medieval roof finials, all the troy town artists and Aaron Angell, who curated the room I am in. If you are interested in ceramics it is a must see, go go. On until beginning of September.
