I have been experimenting with botanical extracts and I am completely hooked….I have already fabricated some wearables from these goods (images soon) and I feel so energized! Full circle and returning to my plant roots! (Addendum 8.8.2013: My enthusiasm for these early encounters with natural dyes have been tempered slightly following the recent workshop at Arrowmont with Catharine Ellis but I feel no less energized!)
@swancoachhousegallery Summer Invitational continues through August 12th.
Swan Summer Invitational opens tomorrow. @swancoachhousegallery Second opening reception this Sunday, June 6th 1-5. Online shop launches on 6/8. Show closes in August.
Next in a series.
Processed (steamed, wax removed, washed, rinsed and dried). Matchbook arrangements of two separate but similar hue sets. I’m feeling a decidedly kaleidoscopic vibe from this wave of work...☀️
Continuing my wax-resist interlude. This cloth is for my 2021 wearable collection (see @petalunacollection for more).
More painted wax-resist samples (freshly applied dye paste).
Painted wax-resist samples, set 1 (before steaming and washing - so super-saturated!).
