A piece I made in, hmm, 1998 or so. It consists of many smallish sheets of hand-made paper containing flower petals. Sheets containing each type of flower were collected into a "flower" and sewn together (in a novel method that "just happened") with thread of an appropriate colour. The flowers rest on the floor, on a low platform covered by sheets of heavier handmade paper.

When it was shown in one of the Cloth&Stitch exhibitions, the "breeze" from the nearby open door didn't do it any favours. It's packed away in a box - I haven't wanted to look at its poor tattered remains.

Looking back, this work was about the process of making - and the surprise of it finally coming together. Somewhat similar to the current work with the screenprinted pages?
