Chrissy's current practice is process and material led. She uses a variety of materials for expression and often likes to work site-responsive. "All aspects of textiles excite me – from the initial design, construction, working with colour and selecting (and rejecting) fabrics. Stitch and embellishment add a further layer of complexity and interest and brings the surface to life." she says.

I was inspired by this quotation describing a deep copper mine in North Wales. I have tried to realise this splendour in the colours and textures of the work. Commercial and hand-dyed fabrics on a thick backing with stitch and texture added by machine and embellisher (needle-felter).
