Inspiration / About the Art: Whilst looking into the number 35, I discovered that it is a tetrahedral number (sum of the first 5 triangular numbers; it’s a maths thing). A tetrahedral is a pyramid with a triangle for a base and 3 sides, instead of a square base and 4 sides. Seeing as this project is about food, a food pyramid seemed the perfect subject.

The significance of the number: The number 35 is may age in 2009 when I created this.

Materials: Cotton fabric, cotton thread, batting, interfacing, distressed silk, pigment ink pen. To create the piece, I used the following methods: image manipulation (Photoshop), ink jet fabric printing, machine quilting, hand writing.

Size: 8 inches x 5 inches
