Caribou On The Tundra
Tapestry - Textile - Batik On Silk Fabric
I spent the summer working at a remote camp in the far north of alaska and wanted to capture the wide open treeless endless tundra.
Comes mounted on 30" x 30" foamcore for a 4" matt
Batik is the process of using wax and dyes to create designs on fabric. Wax is heated in a tool called a tjanting and then passes thru a copper or metal tube on to the fabric. Where the wax is placed, the dye cannot penetrate. I work in layers to create a design. Wax some, Dye some. When the dye touches the fabric, it spreads like water. So the wax creates a border that controls where the dye can go. Salt creates a unique effect as well. When the piece is finished, the wax is removed. I then stretch the silk on foamcore using linen tape.
I use only high quality silk fabric and pure beeswax in my work.
Original is for sale. Please contact me for more info.
