Erosion 5

150 GBP

  • Another great collection of fibres and colours; the top section is made with beautiful green merino which tightened down beautifully during the felting process. Then the middle section was over layered with silk - look at that sheen, the light. At the bottom there’s British wool locks (sorry, I can’t quite recall what they were) And because they done felt quite the same as merino, the bottom is a bit wider - I love how this piece totally demonstrates how different fibres work during the felting process. 
  • “These pieces were created using donated wool from sheep, alpaca, llama and rabbits and natural fibres, yarns and fabrics such as cotton, flax, ramie and hemp including preloved and worn fabrics. These were fused together using the wet felting method and came together to form an installation which hung from a derelict lookout at Brean Down Fort and were exposed to the full force of British coastal weather during September and October. I wanted to see how the individual works faired – would they change, weaken, disappear?”
