Functional and decorative textiles about landscape by Claire Crompton
“Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May” (Shakespeare, sonnet 18)
Wind-scattered hawthorn seeds caught in dark places, hybridising and corrupting gentle blooms; wind-shaken blossom dissolving into black earth; Textile Flora breaking away from domestic vessels.
I combine recycled threads and fabric with mixed media to create my collections of natural forms and landscapes.
Exhibited at The Byre Gallery, March to April 2015
