Ice Shards


Ice Shards

Here is my first posting. 

After looking through Wilhelmina’s vast collection of artworks, I settled on this one to interpret.

For my piece, I started by dying a square of canvas and used it as my base.  The splintering ice shards had to be angular and yet delicate, so I used a scrap of lace curtaining.  The shock waves were created using the confetti technique with lots of embellishment to give the piece sparkle.

  1. Great interpretation Alison. I did have the privilege of seeing it in the making. Your textures give a whole different dimension. Interesting that Patricia also chose the same work.

  3. Welcome to our blog Alison. I see we chose the same design for inspiration and interpreted it so differently. I really like your technique and the way you constructed it into a very pleasing use of textiles, your quilting lines and design. Well done.

  4. It's interesting to see how the same inspiration can be interpreted differently. I like the way you have used the lace.

  5. Lots of movement in your piece as the ice shatters and the shards fly out - well captured. Welcome to the group. H

  6. Both you and Patricia chose the same work of WBG's to interpret and yet, apart from the colour choice, have made 2 very different pieces. Using the lace has given it a different texture as well which adds to the interest of the design .
