Rusted Lace 3 continues the exploration of scientific iron filings on hand dyed fabric to create lacy looking pieces in the Rusted Lace series. Various values of orange are the predominant colors in this particular art quilt. Whole cloth construction with Proxion dyes created the basis for the artwork. Dense hand stitching created the visual and physical texture that is evident even in the photography. Installation of this piece can be in either a vertical or horizontal orientation which really opens up the display options for this work. Merging this artwork with any or all of the other pieces in the series creates a very interesting contemporary artwork with infinite shape possibilities. Artwork is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist.
