So far behind

 I see that it's been months since I last posted.  CRAZY busy!!   Here are a few nibbles.   Bundles (By A Thread) and Wounded Sentinels.   More to come!

KIRIGAMI

   This one is paper so holds folds well.    More trompe l'oeil???

MINIMS

 During the worst of the pandemic in 2020 I obsessively hand stitched 6" squares.   Here we have a finished piece which includes 16 of them and some needle lace which ties them all together.  They maintain their individuality while speaking to each other across boundaries.






This trompe l'oeil piece fools the eye. 2D or 3D???

Shibori Dye Day also asks the viewer:  looking up or down?

Wounded Sentinels are GROWING

 I did a smaller version of this series in 2020 where the sentinels are <24".  But fires keep getting worse so Sentinels need to keep getting bigger.  This guy is close to 40" tall and I am working on several that are approaching 6'.  A bit daunting and physically challenging, but they tell the story dramatically.  



Kirigami

Tough to do in fabric.  This technique is meant to be made from paper which makes and holds a CLEAN fold.  Thank you Photoshop for making this one looked like it  worked!

A Couple of New Items

I'm prepping for my presentation  Into the Third Dimension  and here are a couple of examples of Fosshape and Tyvek- based samples I created.
