'Bramble'

2000
Lampshade
8" diameter x 8" high

Sold


A simple design, showing a small sprig of thorny bramble with ripe, glistening fruit.  As with many of these flower and nature study designs, I have used very fine cotton which gives me finer, more delicate crackle for the lampshade background.

As the lightest colour, I have to wax in the background before anything else, which means I must go carefully in between the spiky leaves and the thorny stem, so when the background colour is done, the bramble shape alone is left unwaxed.  Waxing the negative shapes helps me get sharp edges to the thorns and spikes.

Sadly this piece is sold but if you would like to talk about commissioning one like it, email me
