Rainy Day – This bed quilt, made from pre-printed cottons, was made using Ricky Tims’ Harmonic convergence ideas.  Umbrellas are appliquéd over the top, and it is quilted to resemble rain.  The quilt takes its title from a cd – Rainy Day by Ran Tan Band

Original designs

Colour from Culture – the pieces in this section all take their inspiration from the mythology of the Green Man, often represented as a foliate head.  The line and colour of the eyebrow is the inspiration for all the following works.

Green Man plaque

Green Man Waistcoat – This waistcoat was made using silk dupion, ikat and tussah.  The silks all came from The Silk Route – an Aladdin’s Cave of fabric!

Green Man earrings – These earrings were made in response to a challenge to design for a medium other than fabric.  Swarovski crystals and glass beads on silver wires.

Earth from the Air – the pieces in this section all pay homage to the White Horse of Uffington, one of England’s oldest chalk figures.  The line followed by a small section of the chalk figure, together with the texture of the chalk, is the inspiration for all the following works.
