I am doing a few more lessons with my mixed-media teacher. She suggested we all work with textiles in some or other way. Some people are knitting lovely bath mats with coloured fabric, others are making appliqued tray cloths and napkins. All beautiful, practical and functional objects. I decided to go in the opposite direction. Completely impractical. (And dysfunctional - like I am. Hahahaha.)
I declared my intention to make a bust. As in sculpture. A big fabric bust and then I am going to embroider and stitch on it. 'Where are you going to put it?' asks L'Usband, anxiously eyeing the few remaining surface areas where he can still squeeze in his wine glass. Oh well, I'll worry about that later.
For now I have made a tiny maquette ...
... with a little bust.
