I have enjoyed a lovely workshop with Lorna Crane out of Australia. Here are some of the fabrics I created with inks made into a 3D vessel - something she has pursued in great detail in her own art practice.

I haven't posted anything in the series I've been working on for the past 6 months as nothing is resolved yet. Miles of rust-dyed osnaberg cotton and stacks of experiments, but I feel like I'm beginning to approach the deep dive so here's a (commercial fabric) micro version of one unit of a big wall piece, or 6. Fosshape and needle lace and miles of hand stitching are coming into focus! These are NOT cylinders but cave wall undulations.

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.

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.
