Water hanging on the way


I thought I would show you that I am not hiding, but am in the process of putting together my water hanging of C+G. This was based on texture, and I chose water over the sand as my theme. Way back in the posts I showed the model, and now this is the real thing. It will be about 2.5m long when complete. I also made the slips to fix on to it. The aim of my piece was to be altered by the viewer, so the gathers can be manipulated by the viewer and some slips will be able to be moved to button hole bars, with a hook, to alter the composition of the central panel too. The centre panel is beaded but you can't see it in this picture.3 more gathered strips to do, then I can wire it to a frame the boys in work have made me, that i will couch to a piece of interlining to form the centre panel. What do you think?

Its going to look amazing Carol. I like the thought of being able to alter it as you wish. Very good idea.

I think it's wonderful Carol and such a wonderful idea that people can actually touch it and move things around.

brilliant and ingenious, I love the sound of rippling water and the marks it creates, reminds me of the Australian beaches:) When does it have to be finished by?? Jx
