This beautiful work is by Cathy Franks.
She started with black fabric, wrapped it around
a rope and tightly bound the edges with string.
Discharged in bleach than over dyed.
This is another piece by Cathy.
Discharged than over dyed and thread stitched.
I loved the photos of the grain leg and elevator on
this rust dyed fabric. Nicely done.
This was hanging in Cathy's living room.
I really like how she just hangs spectacular
pieces of cloth from rods.
The beauty of the piece stands for itself.
I bought some string and will look for a
thick piece of rope. I want to try my hand
at this method. I loved the effect.
