Embossing - Found Objects

 Pins have been a revelation within my work. They transcribe the thorns I used previously. Using them as the imagery for embossing circles has allowed for stimulating new ideas.

a found paper bag adds texture to the circle and plays with the ambiguity of the imagery

This embedment made of concrete holds the lint of my family clothing  -  making a extension and reflection on the book written by John Styles, 'Threads of Feeling' which spoke about the connection of the mother + child through the fabrics left behind as Identifiers. This lint must hold the DNA of my family.
