I was inspired to make this piece because for me tea drinking symbolises coming together and connecting with people. The whole ritual surrounding tea drinking is a shared experience particularly when guests arrive: putting the kettle on, getting out the best tea cups, sitting down together to share the warm, comforting drink. I chose to mount the cups on individual tiles, reminiscent of the tiles we might have in our kitchens, the centre of the home, and a place where tea is often shared. The uniform shape of the cups echoes the experience of life in lockdown where everything is the same every day as we are unable to leave our homes and meet people.


Materials and Techniques

The piece is made from silk chiffon, silk devoré, merino wool, cotton scrim, embroidery silks. The techniques used were wet felting, nuno-felting, hand stitching.

Artwork size in CM: Width 59 cm;  Length 51cm;  Depth n/a (flat piece).


Kaleidoscope | Online Exhibition 2020
Welcome to the first online exhibition of the International Feltmakers Association.

This selected exhibition is made up of an eclectic mix of work by IFA members selected by a panel of judges who are experts in their respective felt specialisms.

The exhibition is a positive outcome of COVID 19 and many of the works have been created by the artists at home during the global lockdown.

The theme of Kaleidoscope was chosen as it can be interpreted in an endless number of ways, through colour, texture, shape and form, as our members have shown us with their unique styles and creative interpretations.
