tuesday some embelllisher work
At the top is what the fabric looks like on the back - I have worked wool fibres onto the back of the scrim and below it is the front - wool batts woked onto hand dyed scrim and you can see the other fibres coming through as well as little speckles of scrim.
this is another piece I made today - and on the top I added some thick rovings I had for a bit of dimension.
I have reposted these pics so you can click on them to see a larger image.
The concert last night - Juniper Chamber Orchestra - inaugural concert - was very good. The orchestra is named for Robert Juniper, a pretty well known West Australian artist. I hope they do well.
I am working on my Shanghai vessels - stitching on painted Shanghai newspapers and making newspaper beads for the structural parts. Should be able to post some pics tomorrow if I make good progress.
Stephanie sent me a wonderful Indian braid today which I am no trying to get bulk of. It is glorious and I am hoping to add it to a little embellisher bag I am working on.
