In preparation for the 'Cloud Felts' Exhibitions in 2014, 2015, and 2016, I am working on a series of ideas based on Cloud formations, Sayings, Meanings, and Quotations that evoke notions as inspirations. This has prompted me to explore possibilities with Laser cutting and engraving my felts, and also with Acrylics. Combining the opacity of the felts and the transparency of the Acrylics has given me an additional insight into the interplay of Light and Shadow, and their constant changes through lighting qualities, conditions, and directional angles - truly fascinating Worlds of Discovery and Re-discovery!
A selection of these will be on display in my Solo Exhibition, '"With my Head in the Clouds" at the ICHF 'Creative Stitches' Show, SECC, Glasgow in March 2015
