For Jane

Fragments of relief panels in Pompeii – the lettering is low relief – carved into the surface and the scrolling pattern is high relief which is built up from the surface. I also love the pattern in the background.


A woven piece of strips cut from each of my resist trial samples – before they were washed out.

See a row of the washed out samples in the previous posting.



The image below is entitled ‘The Greater Knit’. It was knitted from a piece of A4 paper as a response to an idea by the director of a local gallery. He sent local artists each a small piece of paper and asked us to respond in a personal way to the theme of ‘Local Wildlife’. As you can imagine, mine was exhibited in amongst a range of landscape water colours, although someone did a beautiful piece of origami – another textile artist of course! Do you think that textile people are more able to ‘think outside the box’?

  2. I didn't realise you could get so much knitting out of a sheet of A4 paper! I love knitting so I'll have to give it a go.
