Silk Mill #1 is part of my series The StructuresIt's 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, The 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. It features screen prints on cotton, digital images on silk, artist-painted and commercial silk and cotton fabrics, and machine stitching.
