|the raw silk was dyed with onion skins and rust|
Monday, May 7, 2012
Several small works emerging from a larger piece of raw silk eco-dyed last summer and textile painted in the fall are now being stitched and beaded.
After being fused to two layers of felt and machine stitched, the cloth hung on the design wall all winter. Sometimes work has to incubate, right? It's fun hatching a new little series this way, chopping up and re-configuring the pieces. I plan to add hand stitching and seed beads, and whatever else seems right as I go along.
