'Heron Umbrella'

1987
Commission, Unframed original
36" diameter

Sold


Commissioned for a wedding present, this is one of only two Batik umbrellas I have done.  The first, the 'Frog' umbrella I made for myself from scratch, working on each panel and then sewing them together to make up the finished umbrella - no easy feat! 

This one was done on a ready-made cream coloured umbrella.  The wax in the finished work makes the umbrella beautifully waterproof!

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