selva primeval, 2008
I decided to put some of the fabric I printed with gelatin plates to good use so I made a small art quilt. I learned the gelatin-plate printing technique from Rayna Gillman and her new book. The butterfly is block-printed from a stamp I carved. The quilt also incorporates some printed mulberry paper and some found object paper.
I need to schedule time for another printing session, the resulting fabric is so unique and versatile, and the technique was pretty quick and easy.
