Tree texture


This picture shows a section of tree trunk which I saw during a recent visit to Tyntesfield. I thought it a glorious texture which could translate well into textile techniques - smocking, couching, wrapping are just some of the ideas I have for this. Unfortunately, the image is not very sharp - it was taken with full zoom and then I cropped the photograph Tyntesfield is a gothic revival extravaganza with a heavy dose of Arts and Crafts influence, and there is something curiously gothic about the shapes made by the bark. Posted by Picasa
