The journey continues 2015

The Journey continues..............

Our experiences as a group over the last three years has helped develop and inform our direction of travel as a group. The Voyage Exhibitions this year in London in April for the 2012 pieces and in Beaujolais in April for the 2013 series were well received.

We go forward as a group into our fourth year with the challenges of working our pieces in series at A2 size. The working theme for this year is 'Nature Abstracted'; we will be producing one piece of work every three months, four in total over the year.

As an added challenge this year a number of the group are preparing additional work for a group exhibit at the Taiwan International Show in 2016.

Our work from 2013 was exhibited at the ICHF Show in March at the NEC Birmingham and our 2014 work is travelling to Minnesota in the USA as a special exhibit.

Glacier

One of the aerial views I wanted to do was a glacier. A diffcult one, but the pounded fabric I created last month was the perfec starting point. I unrolled and split a cotton ball and added this to add a bit more white to the quilt. Covered everything with a black tulle and stitched through it. This is how it turned out:

  1. OOOOO I love this one! The overlay of the black tulle tones down the super white of the cotton ball just enough. Great look.

  2. Looking at an enlarged version, by right clicking the mouse on the image, I was able to see much more clearly the stitching, which really makes the piece resemble an aerial shot of a glacier. A clever idea, Wil. Do I assume that pounded fabric is the same as felted? Very dramatic piece, I like it very much. Elaine.

  3. No Elaine, pounded fabric is not like felted fabric. Check out my blog post of April 29.

  4. Looks Great Will, as Elaine said - very dramatic. I too will have to check your blog to see what pounded fabric is! And thanks for the tip Elaine - about getting the enlarged image!
