I had another ago at tieing the stones in the silk cloth- this one was a little more successful but again the black seemed to seep much more than I wanted- it has created a nice piece of cloth but not quite what I had in mind. The effect I was trying to get was to make a small journal piece inspired by the marvellous wooden door from Damascus- these doors are so big and heavy and wonderful- I liked this one because of the panels. I also want to make a larger piece for an invitational I have been asked to participate in later this year in France, creating work inspired by the word Pierre- I wanted to get the feel of rocks and earth . But it also looks very carpet like very organic- I think it could look wonderful with some hand stitching- not quite sure what thread yet.
