This has been a week of shibori.  It takes a lot of time and patience  to do some of the more intricate techniques, but this pole wrapping is not as fussy as stitching or tying beans or beads for pattern making and the results are so satisfying!  This is a 5 inch piece of PVC pipe and these are some pics of 3 of the ones on this pole.  Water, water, everywhere! And they’ve already been cut into and are part of a WIP (work in progress), that you’ll eventually get to see.Shibori Wrapped on PVC pipe

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
