Shibori with Screen Printed Fish

These cushions I also printed while I was living in Melbourne, as a wedding present for Nick and Sian. I had recently bought a book called Australian Marine Life at the Melbourne Museum and was spending my weekends drawing fish from this book.
This design is based on the Pterygotrigla polyommata, which has wings like a butterfly - very beautiful. The fabric is Thai silk, dyed for a water like effect using the Arashi Shibori technique and the fabric used for the back is green velvet.
