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.
