I’m All Tied Up at the Moment…79x55x6 inches

This piece is the first I developed during my year long project of creating whatever I wished…as long as it fit in the mixed media textile category. I began by choosing a shape…obviously the boat. I cut squares of cotton sheeting and experimented with folding. I needed to determine the correct size for each one.
