Return of the Colour
Some of my followers will remember brooches I made few years back inspired by Kandinsky’s Colour Study painting. For this series I have restricted myself to using only naturally dyed &/or coloured wool and silks. If you know the painting the colours are very vibrant and at times I found it challenging to work in these boundaries. It felt like the dyed fibres I had were not bright enough – plant dyes never seem to clash, yet in the Kandinsky painting I feel there is some clashing or some tension esp. when he used complementary colours.
They are now available via my shop.
