Here is a recent baby carrier accquistion which was collected from the Rongjiang region of Guizhou. The 'silk felt' is raw and applied to undyed handwoven baste fibre. Using the same stencil the main panel incorporates eight dragons whose faces are embellished in chain stitch as are the phoenices running along the side. The two eyelashed centipede-like dragons definitely look destined for the catwalk of dragon couture!
Dimensions: width 96cm length 198cm

This jacket with the basic motifs done in a variety of silk felt, indigo wax resist, applique and embroidery combinations accompanies the earlier baby carrier. Constructed over handwoven baste fibre with indigo dyed sleeves and 'streamers' terminating in chicken feathers suspended from Job seeds and calendared fabric - this coat is suprisingly light and supple. The repeated morphing of images - birds formed of fish formed of insects, etc. - throughout the coat is particularly pleasing.
