Coral Sea – 20 1/2" by 23" 3D fiber art fantasy with pearls, bamboo coral, shell & seed beads, hand painted sea weed and felted fiber art sponges. The largest sponge extends 2" from the textile wall hanging and you can even peek inside! Using my own hand dyed cottons, silks, linens and yarns, the inspiration for this piece was a scuba dive off the coast of Dominica, West Indies along the Scotts' Head undersea island volcanic wall 70 feet below the surface! The borders are 1 inch wide in commercial batik fabric.
You will enjoy the unusual color choices and materials. The entire underwater background is hand beaded with matching color luster individually attached seed beads.
