Insulation felt, beauty & function

This past weekend I started work on a wearable art piece for Cause for Mass Appeal. Each participating artist is teamed with a local company who sponsors each piece. I am working with Sanders Roofing Co. When I met with the folks at Sanders I learned that the business of roofing is all about layers. Layers of insulation, layers of waterproofing, layers of adhesion, layers of sealers. What better expression of layers in fashion than the extravagant dresses of the 18th century? So begins my two week challenge of creating a corset, full hoop skirt and head piece out of roofing materials.
