Holding it Together

This abstract, mixed-media collage uses a variety of papers with silver leaf and ink with a wire-wrapped silk rod at the centre. Silk Carrier Rods are the by–product of reeling silk from the cocoon. As the silk filament is unraveled from the cocoon into skein form, some of the filaments get wound around the machinery. This silk, with the sericin still in it, is then slit and removed. 'Holding It Together' H35 x W26cm framed, £65.

layers of reddish brown handmade paper, print from a book with ink, textured paper with silver leaf and a silver wire wrapped silk carrier rod in the centre
