The Cornish Pilchard
Inspired by the coast of Cornwall and it's rich fishing traditions this piece captures a journey of a shoal of Pilchards spiralling up toward the sun, that has cast its light down into the depths of the rich Cornish sea.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and the Pilchard were achieved through quilting, appliqué, painting and embroidery. These techniques create the different textures from the soft ripples of the sea to the scaly fish. 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.
