Miranda Brett – Textile Art – The Red Tent
What do we do with intact parts of a broken system? In this case a metal air fryer component which has been designed to impale/stab meat for a rotisserie. Looking at this metal form from a different viewpoint, incorporating a diverse range of soft textiles (felt-making and embroidery) with the metal in an inclusive manner, gives the impression of a red tent, a feminine sanctuary …. a space where robust geometric shapes are housed and connected by the lyrical, organic, inclusive nature of woollen felt.
