Artist's description:

The stillness of a quiet morning on the marsh.
This batik on silk fabric comes framed in a 28" x 20.5" black metal frame with a 2.5" very slight gray black core mat. I can ship with or without glass but glass will need to be placed over batik before hanging to protect the silk.


Description

Batik is the process of using wax and dyes to create designs on fabric. Wax is heated in a tool called a tjanting and then passes thru a copper or metal tube on to the fabric. Where the wax is placed, the dye cannot penetrate. I work in layers to create a design. Wax some, Dye some. When the dye touches the fabric, it spreads like water. So the wax creates a border that controls where the dye can go. Silk is such an ethereal medium to work on.
The way the dyes move around and blend in the boundaries created by the wax. Salt creates a unique effect as well. When the piece is finished, the wax is removed. I then stretch the silk on foamcore using linen tape.
I use only high quality silk fabric and pure beeswax in my work.

Materials used:

silk fabric, wax, dyes, foamcore, salt
