Colorful flashes from fireworks displays are the inspiration for this upcycled handwoven textile collage. I stitched several layers of my fabric together to emulate the sparkle from a firework. I also stitched light wispy trails into the night sky background that further enhance the visual impact. But as often happens with abstract pieces, there are other interpretations as well. Viewers also suggested an island, a deep-sea creature and an unraveling nebula.
I believe supporting original art and crafts brings calm and beauty into our lives, and improves our environment in many ways.
