Textile 21 and The World of Glass

Last year we had an exhibition at the World of Glass in St Helens and went for a visit to be inspired. I love the work of Dale Chihuly and wanted to make some textile flowers that looked like glass but obviously on a smaller scale than the picture below.

I made the flowers from 2 layers of pvc which had various fabrics sandwiched between and they were all wired which I was lucky enough to do without breaking a needle.

My first piece was a vase of flowers which I was lucky enough to sell.

The second piece was a bit more wacky and inspired by the plants in Avatar.

Both my pieces got good comments as did the whole exhibition.
