1. 'Sway, dip of a floor'


Part of the 'Mountain Face' quilts series.

60cm x 85cm

Hand dyed, drawn, stitched and quilted cottons and linens.

The main body of the quilt is a soft washed woven cotton- the reverse has been piece-dyed dark green. The mottled effect on the gold and blue shapes are achieved by hand application of the dye- I do this in different ways- painting, dipping, scrunching, flicking. There is a faint wax resist on the gold shape too.

The marks and lines on this piece mean it advisable to gently hand wash this piece cold and dry flat. Avoid excessive wringing.

Made to fit a moses basket, then as baby grows, hang on the wall or pass it on.

The head is Picasso's  'Tete d'Homme à la Pipe', 1965
