Limpets & Barnacles

As featured in Be Creative with Workbox Magazine Issue 195  January 2021

Inspiration comes from my daily walks on my local beach. I often pick up a limpet shell and like to study their unique mark making. No two are the same! I especially love the beach at low tides, investigating the rock pools, this always reminds me of a very happy childhood. 

My limpets are based on the Eurasian limpet, Patella Vulgata

Handcrafted felt is made using the wet felting technique with Merino wool fibres and silk. Hand stitched with cotton, linen and wool threads. The work is 3D approximately 2cm of depth (see photo) and is presented in a deep box frame, with plenty of space around to set off the work. 

Many hours goes into producing a piece of work.

Limpets & Barnacles  has been professionally framed in a good quality deep box frame, the frame is 3.5cm deep to accommodate the work. It has been double mounted and sits on another mount board which I have written the title of the work and signed, glazed and sealed, ready to hang. An authentication label which I have also signed along with description and methodology is included.

Overall Frame Size 34.5 x 34.5 cm x 3.5cm deep box frame

Actual work size approx 18 x 18 cm 

Photographs have been taken before glazing to show the clearest images.
