or – to give you the full title – [private] portfolio

this was my entry for the biblio art award 2012, offered annually by blarney books

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

it took weeks of thinking, dyeing, collage, stitching and assembling

i made it from what was originally a book (great expectations by charles dickens); this was sent to me in a brown paper bag so that you didn’t know what you were getting …

while working on this, i sort of became estella havisham, so that this became her portfolio

not for sale

  2. That was worth searching for! Would have liked to have been able to see closer eg seen the stitching. I tried using Gallery on my blog but with textiles it doesn’t give the viewer long enough to appreciate the work, so I abandoned it. Looks like I will need a large pot of tea when I sit down to browse your work! Cheers KnitNell


    • Thanks so much for your visit and hope to ‘see’ you again soon! Glad you liked this … one way you can get a better look at pictures in a slideshow is to press the ‘pause’ button, then press the ‘control’ and ‘+’ keys down at the same time. It will then zoom in on that slide … to zoom out again, just do the same thing but with the ‘-‘ key! =D
