Coffins

I’m wondering about the idea of having my (g)mothers names wrapping around me – if I was younger I’d be thinking of some sort of blanket but I’m far nearer the time I’ll be using a coffin so I think it’s time to explore a few.

This coffin is far more personal. This retails at £660.00 and is woven from rare breed sheeps’ wool, with a calico liner, made by Linda Robinson.

I’ll think through this idea further as I need to raise the concept from a craft base to fine art.
