inspirational mineral: Labradorite

There are so many beautiful images of minerals. I was particularly interested in representing a mineral found in Canada.

Looking for Labradorite
79cm x 74cm
hand-dyed assorted fabric from Ms Emma designer S. Verna,
found paper from Arles, France,
magnetic map paper, machine stitched

I liked the variety of colours of the Labradorite and the black lines showing fractures on the rocks.


I interpreted those straight lines as contour lines much like a geophysicist would do on a magnetic map.
