This is a textile piece which I did some time ago. It is an attempt to show the land from the air, seen through thin cloud cover. Travelling by air one so often looks down and sees a patchwork of fields, lakes, villages etc. through patchy cloud. I have tried to convey this. I have layered chiffons, sweet papers, metallic materials and bit and bobs of material, sewn them lightly and then burnt them back, using a heat tool.
