Folded linen

Inspired by this folded and starched linen piece I made at West Dean I am starting an exploration of materials – some I will have used before and some will be new to me. I am interested in the way the natural quality of the cloth is altered, the meaning inferred by different materials and the time taken for the cloth ‘to cook’

To start – three small folded linen cloths waiting to be saturated with salt. I intend to do the same with varnish, bitumen, emulsion, starch and wax……watch this space!
