Bound: Part 1

For generations women have been bound to the home and a life of domesticity. This piece is a celebration of the tools of their trade. Beautiful Skyline products manufactured in the Lancashire town of Burnley, well-worn wooden spoons and unusual utensils. Each piece tells a story through the imperfections, scars and dents it has collected through use. Artwork is mounted onto a cotton tea-towel woven in Quarry Bank Mill . Size 31 x 38 cm. Vintage kitchen utensils, hand bound with vintage crochet and Sylko threads.
