Autumn Flow 1 and 2

Two teeny tiny little pieces of textile work.  The photo doesn’t really show the sheen on the mohair that has been used in the needle-felting on the black felt background.  They are approx 2″ square-ish.  Copper thread has been used to add the lines and shapes, along with copper, gold and red beads.

The colour reminds me of autumn, but I also think it may be how I seen passionate love too.  It has a wonderfully warm, deep, intense colour to it that I find quite irresistible, not a colour I would have usually loved.  I think this could be becoming my favourite colour!

The lines remind me of contour lines on an OS Map.  I feel a new source of inspiration for art coming on… maps and satellite and aerial imagery perhaps.  I know my fingers have been fair twitching for paper and pens and inks and paints and pencils to use my textile work as an inspiration for other forms of art, so my textile work may become an inspiration for me too. How weird is that?

These may be for sale on Etsy…I’ll have to decide if I can part with them!

  1. I love the organic lines, they remind me of a view of something through a microscope – isn’t it fascinating how ppl see such different things in an abstract design! Lovely work 😀

    • Microscopic patterns I see too…and realised that after I’d written the post. It’s amazing how similar patterns are seen all across the natural, and man-made, universe, at all magnifications too, and how these seem to creep out in abstract work. Thank you for the lovely comment too 🙂
