Inspired by Drochel. This piece and ribbon lacereferences antique laces the most. The motif that I screend onto silk and then cut out was a miotif I siolated from an eighteenth century piece of drochel lace I bought in Brugge in belgium ( this was one of the great lace making regions and was te one which is closest to Walcheren. Indeed lace made Brugge rich and the centre of Brugge- called the Venice of the North is just delightful) Again the shadows are an intrinsic part of the whole. This piece is about 120 cm wide and 2.2 metres long and i scurrently on exhibition at Centre European du Patchwork. it is priced at $1000 inclusive of shipping ( if it does not sell in France)
Ribbon Lace- this piece i salso inspired by traditional ribbon lace from the Brugge area. I bought an old paper design which had been used for the lacemakers and extracted part of the design to make the screened motifs. For me this piece has a very oriental feel about it- perhaps it is the colour- the shadows look like drifts of cloud which was intnetional for the netherlands has great cloudy skies. This piece measures 2 metres by 2.5 metres and is currently on display in france. It is priced at $1300 US which includes shipping.

I particularly like these pieces and the method which you used for hanging. You're right, the shadows *are* an intrinsic part of the design and add a bit of fairy-world elegance, especially if there are mild air currents passing. How lovely!
