'Remember me' by Jo Muir 

A few words about remember me...

'Rust marks on silk.
In creating remember me, I carefully handstitched rusted nails and pins from claudias beehives, to a length of fine silk, using vintage French silk thread. I then bundle dyed with a bath to encourage the rusting process. This was to acknowledge the contrast between

Soft.  Hard
Fluid. Rigid
Wanted. Unwanted

The resultant marks and indentations on the silk, honour the marks left behind when love moves on. All is not lost. The threads were left when I removed the pins to signify the threads that connect us to humanity' Jo Muir

Medium: Botanically printed vintage silk 
Fabric Dimensions: Appr (h)1500mm x (w) 450mm
Due to the transient nature of botanical dyes, we advise that this piece be out of direct sunlight.
