My wearable art business Mariposa Artisan Textiles entered its 4th year officially with the Beacon Hill Open House this past weekend. My gracious host, Patty O’Keefe Hutton (www.contemporaryicons.com), created a beautiful nest for both myself and Michelle Jordan (www.jordanclaystudio.com) within which to present our work, and the result was a wonderfully blended and complementary mix. Thank you to all who dropped by to say hello and see the latest pieces!!….Moving into the present, I am “back in the saddle” with a full production schedule ahead. The felt keeps rolling and the dyepots flow. I am also preparing to teach, in mid-October, the first of two nuno felt workshops. Much is evolving, in-flux and indeed progressing, at Studio Mariposa. This is an expansive time as much energy is directed toward building work and being out in the world. However, I’m determined to find the space and time for deeper reflection. With an open heart, I move forward.
I'll be showing wearable work tomorrow 12/2 and Saturday, 12/3 - visit @out.of.our.hands.art.sale for times and location (and @petalunacollection for more images from this facet of my practice).🌀
Back home and back to work but still thinking about beautiful Guanajuato, its surrounding wilds, and friends (old and new) there. I have been to this City many times but there is always more to experience, learn, and love. I look forward to returning as soon as I can!
Some views from Guanajuato City 🏼☀️🌸
Between wearable projects, more pigment exploration. Indigo, ink, gold leaf (detail)
Banana leaf transition.
Stayed long enough for each of us to check the other out before disappearing. 🌀
Remnants of a tree long fallen have become host to a wide variety of shelf-fungi...slowly breaking things down.
In-progress. Not sure whether I'm working towards or working through, but either way, evolving.
