Cocoons

This series of works is an experiment to see how form and colour can be introduced into a natural environment. I work with a combination of textiles and metal, using traditional metal and textile techniques and craft skills. In my previous work, the assumed fragility of  textiles has been used to supported the weight and immutability of steel. With the cocoons, I am exploring the opposite effect. Here the metal structures provide a support for the textiles, giving it form, space, life and weightlessness.
