Souvenirs from Secret Constellations
Natural dyes, handwoven textile, cotton, silk, cast iron and bronze fragments
45” x 36”

Handwoven cotton textile, woven on a floor loom, naturally dyed bed sheet, silk, cast iron and bronze textile with mineral patina. Each piece is naturally dyed with hibiscus flowers, eucalyptus leaves, oak tannin, goldenrod, onion skins, and iron, sewn onto canvas and mounted on wood.
