Fern Spoons

You may recognise this drawing as it is a development of my earlier fern drawings. When I was doing my first experiments in paper and in the different workshops one of my lecturers noticed my interest in natural forms and geometrical shapes and pointed out how even my organic ink drawings could be transformed into geometric shapes.
I therefore decided to develop my ink drawing of dead fern into a geometrical form.
DSCN8918Shortly after being given our Spoon project we had a textiles print workshop. We were asked to bring a drawing with us to photocopy so I decided to use this.DSCN8921I painted ink onto the photocopies and then placed them face down on fabric in a heat press. The ink from the photocopies repels the ink you paint on it so when it is transferred the image is in negative.DSCN8922I really enjoyed working in this way and had fun layering and playing with colour. I thought autumnal would be appropriate and look beautiful.DSCN8924DSCN8927DSCN8929As we had just been given the Spoons project I developed this work into spoon prints.DSCN8930DSCN8935I am really pleased with these, especially as I am not usually as enthusiastic about working in 2D but these were fun to do and really successful.DSCN8932
