Jacquard woven blanket made in 2009 | queens size | wool, cotton, acrylic, lurex | border is made with cotton fabric and wool embroidery
The blanket was inspired by a photo I took of a concrete base of a steel bridge. Water had leaked from the steel onto the concrete base and stained it with beautiful colours. I translated the image left behind into this blanket ‘Steel ‘n Stone’.
Not only is the title ‘Steel ‘n Stone’ literally referring to the elements, but it also contains an emotional layer addressing that we are living in a world made of Steel ‘n Stone. This is depicted in a set of drawings and an installation I made in 2010.
Later that year (2010) I hand knitted this jumper called THESE BURNING ARMS OF MINE.
