My final piece for my A2 textiles project on glass!
The cut away sections at the front were inspired by the shapes of stained glass from my local cathedral.
The sleeve multi-coloured pleating/folding with organza was inspired by the amazing glass work of Dale Chihuly. The imagery of saints faces was all taken from stained glass panels and free-hand machine embroidered on the front and painted onto silk on the back. The rest of the back was largely done using image transfer paper and my own digitally manipulated photos of stained glass.
This has taken SO MANY HOURS but I’m so happy it’s done, I hope you like it…and that I get a good grade! ;)
(Oooh, and thanks to fiona for modelling!)
organza of many colours, bondaweb, threads, transfer paper, ‘gold’ foil, silk, silk paint, black cotton.
