Lose the coffin reference… and the above screen-shot from my computer dictionary seems quite an apposite description for the current state of affairs. Recovering from long hours in the studio and emerging from the white winter onslaughts, I now feel able to catch up a little here with the woven lead images promised quite a while ago. These were developed after studying Egyptian plain weave linen fragments in the stores at the V&A. These detail photographs were taken by Jerry Hardman-Jones in Yorkshire and Peter Kelleher in the Museum’s photography department. I hope you enjoy the lead*en*ness of these images.
