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.
Rapped up a week-long Indigo adventure with a wonderful group of teens at Camp Carlos! I am so grateful to @carlosmuseum for making this camp possible!
I’ve been sharing the Indigo experience with teens this week at the Michael C. Carlos Museum. Images are of my introductory samples. So much amazing work is being created this week!!- I’ll post more from the workshop soon!🌸
