Mary continues to explore the theme of the weaving industry in her work and this piece 'Velvet' is inspired by the way that velvet is woven and then sliced through with wires to create the pile.

This 4 metre long piece, which uses 4000 (yes thousand) metres of thread will be on show at the 'Drawn Thread' exhibition at The Guildhall, Bury St Edmunds from Wed 20th until Sun 24th May 2020
