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!)

Indigo pigment as paint - getting a feel for it. Part of “Indigo Spring”.☀️
Indigo Spring emergents. Just getting started.☺️🌀
Otherworldly. I’ve been working with #indigodyeing this week (see my story for details on the process and finished pieces). I can’t help but be intrigued by random drip patterns on the paper I use to move the vat “flower” aside while I’m dyeing.
I am overflowing with inspiration - head working faster than my body can manifest. Am content with process being it’s own reward.
