Title: Looking Out Through the Cracked Lens of My Kaleidoscope

This piece reflects my perception of how confinement for COVID19 can affect ones view of a world reduced to the garden and surrounding trees. Not venturing out, I used existing resources, and was inspired by the theme for this exhibit.

 

 

Materials and Techniques.

Wet felting with needle felting/applique/beading.  Wool roving, bits harvested from old weavings and knitting, prefelts, eco printed silk, silk hankies, beads.
