In October I’ll have a table at a very cool fiber festival. While I may have some matted or framed small works there I plan to feature purses, iPad cases, and “table art”. The basket & runner I had at the art center sold earlier this summer so I thought I’d make some more. The first one is pretty tame with just two colors and a long strip-pieced runner.
After I made the next bowl I dredged up some “chicken” fabric I used years ago in a Ricky Timm’s piece for the runner This time I incorporated free-pieced blocks in the runner. This one was more fun to make but I wonder if it will appeal to anyone.
Since that was so much fun I thought I’d make a smaller free-pieced mat for a bowl I made a while back.
This bowl was made from the ugliest fabric I have ever seen.
No, I didn’t buy it. It came in a prize basket at the Chicago IQF several years ago.
This bowl got a little larger than planned. I’m still playing around with ideas for the runner.
Its been fun and relaxing to work on these. I get to play with fabric and use some color combinations that don’t often find their way into my work.
On the art front, I have some pieces in “Voices” at the Birmingham-Bloomfield Art Center (Michigan) and traveled downstate for the opening earlier this month. I wrote about the opening on the Fiber Artists Coalition blog and the exhibit has its very own website.
