A Drop in a Bucket - Finished!

This is what I have been working on. Made the deadline yesterday!

A Drop in a Bucket

Artist Statement: The majority of water for household use in African and Asian rural areas is obtained (usually from unclean sources) by women and children walking an average of 6 kilometres. Every 20 seconds a child dies from lack of clean water. That is 4,000 each day. How far to your tap?
Height: 76cm
Width: 74cm

Materials: Cotton, linen, felt, recycled cyanotype dyed fabric, felt tip marker and colour pencil.

Techniques: linen rusted and overdyed with indigo, hand dyed fabrics using different techniques, Free machine embroidery, raw edge applique

Here is a detail image.

I hope they like it as well as I do. I will let you know if/when I hear. If selected it will be part of the Wide Horizons IV at Carrefour Europeen du Patchwork at Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines, Alsace, France in September.
