Sample Project 2013 - February

One sample per week inspired by the photo in my John Muir Trust Wild Nature Diary. I’m keeping up so far, but not finding enough ways to go off piste yet!



Week 6: The Old Man of Storr

(Photo of Trotternish Peninsula, Skye, in snow)

The text mentioned this iconic rock formation. I used one of my own photos of it for the shape.

Solid free machining (straight and zigzag) on Aquasol.







Week 7: Plant enclosed in rime ice

(Photo of heather I think, each sprig completely surrounded by clear ice)

Free machine embroidery on Aquasol. Dissolved, then trapped in file pocket plastic, machine stitched round and cut out.







Week 8: Hooded Crow

(Photo of two hooded crows in snowy tree)

Black and grey wool-viscose felt cut out and embellished onto white.





Week 9: Kelp in rock pool

(Photo of limestone shore with kelp in a pot hole)

Kunin felt with hole cut out, free machined all over, including edges of hole, on Aquasol. After dissolving, orange ribbon was bunched up in the hole, with black felt behind, and secured with a few hand stitches.
