A Calling Within The Reed
Within the river bank hidden amongst the reed, a Sedge Warbler sits proudly in full song. It imitates the songs of other birds to its full ability hoping to draw out its mate from the vast reeds beyond.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted, the Warbler and reeds were achieved through quilting, appliqué, painting and embroidery. These techniques create the different textures from the soft warm feathers of the Warbler to the dried out seed heads of the reeds. Unfortunately, the three-dimensional relief doesn't show particularly well in the photos, so please take a look at the depth of the piece to get an idea of the overall effect.
