A better view -
About 15 years ago I made a lot of "leaves" out of metallic organza - this one had a longer stem, but a very delicate one -
This little object, about 8cm high, has a panel of metallic organza and is propped up by wires woven into the fabric and affected by firing. The delicate edge is a nice thing -
As the supply of porcelain casting slip had (temporarily, I hope!) run out, instead of doing any casting this week I was thinking about how to make a box for each piece ... the prospect of which will focus my attention on making fewer but much better pieces ... and doing some more painting with glaze on ever-larger gatherings of fabric -
seen at Collect craft fair a few years ago.
As the course is about "surface design", you might want to see some of that ... what the rest of the class has been up to -
