Taking a quick break from cleaning fleece (more on that to follow) and drawing figures to try and finish my final piece for our forthcoming 'Inspired By' exhibition. You may remember I used Kozo -which I wired,beaded and stitched -to create a 'Ruff' inspired by the Elizabethan objects for a previous OPUS module. For my last 'Inspired By' piece, as my inspiration was Monet, I am producing a 'Waterlily' which takes that Kozo technique a little further by incorporating silk tops to add delicate colour using the embellisher. Here it is almost complete- all I have left to do is to make a dragonfly to sit on it. I have also been thinking about display as it is quite delicate and have found an acrylic tub to use as a dome to protect it.

Hi Chrissy
Lovely water lily and your method of display looks great. When's the exhibition?

Yes, when is the exhibition?
Looks like its going to be worth seeing.
Two beautifully delicate pieces here.
