And Finally

Today is the last of my posts looking at techniques using synthetic fabrics and I'm going to share photos of the piece I made for an exhibition last summer.

There was one long hanging piece and on the plinth were two pieces of pleated fabric together some stones that I had collected from the area that I was studying. I had used the stones as my colour source.
Below are close up photos of the pleated pieces.
