This piece is inspired by the generous, triangular “mantillas” I saw while visiting Madrid some years ago. I have had a vision of being cocconed in a felted version for years. The process of designing one has resulted in an emerging theme for me: working with modular pattern repeats…in this case, building on a favorite surface pattern (a “web-wave” variant) with some light relief elements.
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.
