A material difference

I’ve enjoyed the process of taking material which is very thin and flat and by moulding it seeing in become rounded and comfortable to hold in the hand. Thinking about how to use more organic materials I have taken a section of old linen and also a crocheted trim and worked them with a fabric stiffener called Paverpol. They are now hard and almost stone like but still with the texture of the material which intrigues viewers. I also enjoy giving these charity shop items a new life and turning their history into a kind of small monument .
