This red silk is just amazingly vibrant. I have overlaid the painted silk with hexagonal red sparkles and a little red dust that catch the light on your table. The patterns are formed with dots of water that move the dye and then quickly dried. They are equally effective in low light situations, sometimes even more so.
Each coaster measures 100 x 100mm.
These coasters are my own invention that transform my painted silks into heat resistant and waterproof items. The process is lengthy and each stage is done by hand. The colour is painted on the silk fabric. It is then put between two sheets of acrylic sheet over crunched and rolled foils with a specially formulated resin. The back is sanded and cork applied in a vacuum bag. Then sanded again. They are cut, routed, bevelled and the corners rounded on a belt sander. The final polishing of edges and corners is done on a polishing mop. I have been making like this for over 20 years, but these are the last I will be making.
The coasters are perfect for hot and cold drinks and literally last years and years.

My speciality is making something nobody else does! Years of experimenting and creating original silk panels and tableware.
My colourful silk jewellery really comes to life when it’s worn. The pieces dance and catch the light as you move, but are extremely difficult to capture in a photograph. Each piece has been created with imagination and great attention to detail to ensure you receive a completely unique item. I am happy to make custom pieces for you….any colour you’d like!
I discovered Art Resin a couple of years ago and I love the fact that it can surprise you at every turn. When I’m working with resin I can transport myself to the peace and solitude of a stroll on the shore. I try to create this atmosphere in my work to capture a moment in time.
