Imagery of Killerton House & Grounds
This design started from photography and sketches of natural forms in the grounds combined with the historical dress archive of Killerton House.
I chose to use nature materials to create the piece to reflect the beauty I found there - weaving withy and hand felting individual panels to reflect the forms and shapes I from my inspirations.
