Inspired by lichens growing on a drystone wall. While out walking it is worth slowing down and taking a closer look, there are hundreds of species in the UK alone. Lichens are widely used as environmental indicators or bio-indicators.
My studies are not intended to be direct facsimiles, instead I take inspiration from their form, colour and patterns and interpret that in my handcrafted felt and embroidery.
The felt is made using the wet felting technique with Merino wool fibres and silk. Hand embroidered with fly stitch.
Professionally framed in a beautiful bare faced oak wooden frame with a double mount board which I have written the title of the work and signed. The frame is a good quality, solid oak which has been not been varnished so the natural grain compliments the work. Ready to hang. An authentication label which I have also signed along with description and methodology is included.
Overall Frame Size 26 x 26 cm
Actual work size 14 x 14 cm
Photographed before glazing.
