Julie James-Turner

black on black

Ive been experimenting with different shades of black thread on black taffeta, to create digitally embroidered feathers but there is black and then there is black! Threads look very different tones of black in different lighting. So after contacting Maddie Ive decided to go for a set of three tones of black for the embroidery. 

Ive also made a prototype for the glove.
 My idea has evolved from the poem and been inspired by black crows messengers of the afterlife. There is so much symbolism attached to crows they are fascinating creatures.
