Transforming raw unspun wool fleece through alignment of wool fibres by carding; water temperature variations with lubricating additive, the fibres are agitated and a structure is the result. Historically, numerous technological advances have been applied to the process:
Mechanical felting; steam pressure forms to enhance longevity of form; and numerous sewing machine feature techniques of embellishment to list a few. Thus structure has been reworked, manipulated, transformed by these processes resulting in a product/work very evolved from its original state of raw fibre. This work I have created for this exhibition, Fluvial Flutter, has evolved from that raw fibre state to a 3-dimensional form.
