Silk Memory Vessel 2012
The construction of the silk fabric used in this piece was demonstrated during the 2012 Hudson Studio Tour using a felting machine. This machine lends itself to and intuitive way of working, blending and mixing fabrics together spontaneously, encouraging a fresher more relaxed creative approach. The final construction of the vessel involves a backing fabric that is more rigid to hold the desired form. Braided tassels across the back were added as an element of surprise.
