Medium wall hanging.
Organic cotton dyed with natural dyes and waxed.
The cotton has been dyed pink with avocado skins and over-dyed with tea and iron. The pattern depicts the seashore, the receeding tide revealing seashells.
Discarded fishing net collected on my local beach has been embroidered into the seashells and used as the hanging string. Eyelets have been insterted into the seashell patterns and at the top as a wink to boat sails and the origin of waxed canvas.
Texture and finish:
The texture of the finished piece is very light and paper-like with a sligh translucency. Neat raw edges on the sides, raw frayed edge on the bottom.
