Abstract Artwear

Reminiscent of early abstract painters like Jackson Pollock, this is a very long flowing wrap or a wall hanging. It is wet felted with fine merino wool over a printed textile. Sari silk is scattered like paint over a soft subtle rose colour. The sari silk gives the piece wonderful highlights and textures and colour. Darker purples with lime are on the reverse side. It is 70 inches long! And is 22 inches wide. I have layered the fibres very thinly over the base scarf (70% modals and 30 % silk). The overall effect is the piece is almost transparent in lightness and has an incredible drape.

My work is created from the wet felting techniques which uses water, soap and lots of agitation of wool roving. I strive to create artistic pieces either as wearable items or fibre artwork. I explore dynamic designs with an emphasis on rich colours. Felting has an incredible ability to have unique visual textures particularly when fine silk fibres are layered on the surface of the wool. The effect of silk fibres will dramatize colours, transparencies and give stunning highlights. I use high quality merino wool and alpaca which gives wearable items an incredible next to skin softness. These natural fibres are known for their warmth. I create warm soft wraps and also lighter flowing pieces by using the nuno felting techniques. Nuno felting uses silk gauze as a base upon which wool and silk fibres are layered very thinly to achieve a wonderful drape. My larger pieces can be worn as wraps or hung as a wall hanging or a window display.
