Crackington: Textile Relief

I created this textile relief a few years ago, when I was working on a series of reliefs that were inspired by the cliffs and rocks of Cornwall.

The bigger scale of a wall relief provides a great opportunity to play with colour, as there is a much wider surface area to work with than there is with smaller jewellery pieces.
The relief was made as one single piece of fabric, which was then stitched into shape and embellished.

I’m planning on shifting it onto a more interesting background that will provide more of a sense of connection and interplay, haven’t gotten around to it yet though!

I’m particularly fond of the detail shots I took of this piece, so I’ve included quite a few for you to browse – enjoy!
