Slag Heap Series
I'm working on the next four pieces in this series. Cloth - Roses is an example of where I begin with dyeing and over-dyeing. I will try to post various stages in its development.
Jessica at the loom
Jessica, aged 10, has been working on the multi-colored rug on my big Glimakra floor loom for well over a year. We have decided that she will be done this summer! She's been tying rya knots. Next up, I'm going to teach her how to weave tapestry. She comes once/week and is a joy to have around with her creative imagination and story telling talents.

Opening Day Uncommon Threads at AJU/LA
Sunday, May 9, 2010
I've been doing some joomchi (Korean mulberry paper felting) again lately as I've been invited to submit some work for consideration for a show in Korea (!). This is my favorite of the new pieces. It represents hours and hours of rubbing by hand. The previous piece I made I threw in the dryer three times just to avoid getting worse arthritis! It got all beat up so of course I stitched into it and made a collage. This one is a bit more delicate.
