Vintage Rust




Ambling through the neighbourhood recently I came across an amazing old rusty bedspring.
Not one to let an old bedfellow down, I took it home with me.
How could I resist? Who knows what secrets this rusted spring would yield?

Through an amazing process of dyeing the tissue silk, my vintage springs long hidden secrets are revealed in the wonderful shapes with circles and spirals and bleeding rust.
All that remains is for me to decide what to do with the silk. Should I nuno felt it and turn it into a tunic or wrap? Or should I leave it as it is?. Any ideas are welcome. video
