Contrast and 3D

Today I'm posting a further glimpse of finished work - a 3D piece developed from the sketch book study I posted about on 26 March. It's a quilted and Möbius twisted piece echoing the lines, shapes and contours of the Cotswold Hills where I live.


I'm sure there is still more to explore with this form and with the stitching lines so I have a feeling I'll be back with it fairly soon ...

    1. Very many thanks, Josie, and welcome to my blog. I've just visited yours and enjoyed all your fresh light colour, so different from mine!

  3. This is a fascinating form, reminiscent of so much: to me it speaks of a leisurely contemplation of the countryside. The 3D form reflects the view of the landscape, but also makes me think of the indoors: of a dressing gown, dreaming, stitching, ... lovely.

    1. Thank you, Olga. I think I've enjoyed doing this almost more than anything else I've done. The fascinating thing with this form is that it can take on so many shapes, depending on how it relates to the surface it sits on ... lots more to explore. Fascinating to hear how you see it!

    1. Very many thanks, Nora. I can feel that this is an idea to explore further. As I drove home this afternoon from a day exhibition stewarding, I took more bare branch photos ... just in time as all the hedgerows around here are bursting with small green leaves.

    1. The next two exhibitions for me are in flat white wall galleries with little or no opportunity for 3D - a shame as I'm really liking it too - but I'm going to think 21/2 D ie in a frame etc but with depth ... could be interesting.

  6. Lovely. It certainly is a very effective technique.
