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!)
Many of you know that my studio practice includes designing and building artisan apparel (@petalunacollection). I will be showing selected pieces from that body of work on Dec. 4th at #littletreeartstudios in Avondale, Ga. 11-6. After that, I’ll be open by appointment at my studio leading up to the winter holidays.🌀
A work in progress.
Seasonal entropic sampler. So much richness in decay.😌
Another piece in the puzzle.
Another group of pieces in the #hambidgeauction - 10”x10”stitched modules; appliqué layers of tannin/ferrous printed and painted cloth; prepared for framing.🎉
Receptive #4 heads to the #Hambidge auction next week.
Final day of the natural dye print workshop (this past Sunday) - a resounding success! Thank you to all who participated! I’m also grateful for the space and facilities at the SEFAA Center. 🎉More images in stories.
