Wool Paper Triptych

About this project

A private commission for interior wall artwork inspired by translucent hand made paper. The wools were chosen from rare breed British flocks selected for their distinctive characteristics and aesthetic appeal. Three panels, each 2.4 metres in length. Working to this scale tested technical skills and material boundaries, amply rewarded by the transparency achieved and visual effect of overlaying the contrasting panels.
