The Stardust Collection combines my love for weaving with my fascination for the universe. For millions of years, a star obtains a balance between two forces: an outward-directed force due to nuclear fusion and the inward-directed gravitational force. At the end of a star's life, there is no fuel left for nuclear fusion and the star cannot counteract the gravitational force any longer. The star collapses and explodes into a supernova. This shawl with its large star patterns symbolises the major extent of a supernova.
