Cotton and silk yarn, acrylic yarn, latex, backing fabric.
This project was tufted on the same piece of backing fabric as Dripping Egg. With both pieces I wanted to explore the capabilities and audience reactions to tufting. Circles are a very satisfying shapes for myself and others, and I wanted to showcase the colour variations that ca be achieved through mixing different yarns. This piece was displayed in New Adelphi's Atrium at the University of Salford, as part of the Middlewood Locks competition to win a Masters Degree. I won a second place prize of £3000 towards a tufting gun of my own, because of my enthusiasm for the medium.
