Illusions in Silk

40" x 30"

I love to work with silk fabrics and decided to make a wallhanging with using a lot of different techniques and textures in fabric manipulation. I corded, braided, trapuntoed, stuffed, pleated and twisted the silk fabrics together. In addition, I used copper sheeting and painted a copper color onto tyvek material and appliqued it onto the wallhanging. Decorative yarns and threads were used thru out. I mounted it on a canvas board and hung it in our family room. I made this one in 2003 and still have it hanging in the same place. It is one of my favorite pieces.
