Artist Statement – Radiant Sunset
Radiant Sunset has been made by Chain Stitch Rug Hooking
In the “Meaning of Flowers”, Ranunculus means Radiant.
The wool was first cut into thick strips then individually hand dyed with food colouring, then cut into thinner strips for hooking.
The purpose of hand dyeing the strips was for the colouring to achieve an end result of an impressionist painting in wool.
The colours produced inspired the Ranunculus, garden and sunset.
