SILK MILL #2

 

Silk Mill #2
The second in a series based on the historic Ashley and Bailey Silk Mill, circa 1899, in Columbia, PA. It was abandoned in the 1970's, and had become a magnificent ruin, partially overtaken by vegetation. These images are from photographs I took at the beginning stages of a renovation that has turned a portion of the building into a tourist attraction.


Screen prints on cotton, digital images on silk, artist-painted and commercial silk and cotton fabrics, couched threads and rick rack, machine stitching, hand beadwork.
Size: 35”h x 40”w
For Sale: $2,900
