These are photographs of my second Erosion Bundle, fresh from the edge of the compost heap. You might remember that my three feathered friends scratched it up, so it had to be reburied with due ceremony. It was wet and soggy and definitely smelly.
And a feeding ground for some yukky maggots.
The photograph below shows a strip of screen-printed wool, which has faded quite a bit and has begun to grow some kind of mould.
Here it is with what I initially thought was more and bigger maggots, but then I remembered that it was a cuff I had knitted! The lavender buds and incense sticks certainly did not conceal the pungent aroma wafting up from the unwrapped bundle.
A close-up of the wool.
A gloriously golden stamp stuck to a piece of muslin, which took the dye from the wool.
Another muslin/stamp combination.
This is the knitted cuff that I thought was maggots, once it was rinsed and dried.
The whole piece has come out in a kind of butterfly wing shape, so there is definite potential there for something.
I love the way the dye shades have transferred to the lacey edging from the screenprinted wool cloth.So now we've all got until August to produce our artistic creations ..... any suggestions more than gratefully received!
