In A Flap
Caught within barbwire a selection of sheep's wool has become intangled. It blows gently in the wind and catches the eye of passing Robin who stops to take a closer look. It's perfect for some home improvements, so he decided to take some with him. Though it quickly proves a little more tricky to release than first thought. He pulls, tugs and wiggles but it just won't budge! With a flap of his wings, he pulls backs and teases the wool free.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and the robin, wool and barbwire were achieved through quilting, appliqué, painting and embroidery. These techniques create the different textures from the soft feathers of the bird to the delicate petals.
