A few summer silks – a refreshing change from cotton!

And some wool gauze scrarves.

Earth Tones Scarves

Next year’s cottons drying after a second soymilk soak.

Soymilk Mordant Drying.web.

Only 2 soaks this time. Then, I can decide what I want for the final mordant. Perhaps a third soy mordant for some of it, although I’m not sure I see a big difference between 2 and 3 soaks. It could be added calcium carbonnate to a final alum soak; never know till I get there!

Thanks for visiting!

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.
