I have a drawer in my studio full of curious, decorative old bits and pieces which I like to combine with old textile and stitch. This small mounted piece is made from naturally-dyed vintage cotton (using local plants and steam), layered with a piece of antique quilt and other old textile scraps, embellished with my hand embroidery. Added to this are a selection of tiny functional objects transformed with naturally-dyed silk threads and raffia. This piece is 23cm square and wrapped on board then mounted on 32cm of white card ready for framing.
