Damn! The ‘Dime’ bar (or ‘Daim’ as it seems to have metamorphosed into here in the UK.)
This marks number 15/16 in the current series of chocolate bars re-written. I’m currently discussing exhibition space whilst planning where my work will take me next. I have many an idea still involving typography and my unique style of three-dimensional metal thread work.
The above photo shows single strand silk shading background stripes and preliminary felt padding. As for my reels of coloured metallic thread, I highly recommend the London-based ‘Benton and Johnson’ (sister company of Toye & Co) – their range of vibrant metallics are unsurpassable and an absolute treat for the imagination. After all, ‘Goldowork’ refers more to a particular set of techniques rather than a pre-requisite for the colour of metal thread to be used. Yet another delightful source to spend the student loan I don’t have!
