Chrysanthemum made of bronze and copper clays.
And here's a nuno felted scarf in process. Nuno felting combines wool with another fiber in an open weave, such a silk or cotton gauze, using soap and water to bind the fibers together for incredible texture and design possibilities. I'm so excited to be pursuing something soft and warm and to give my hands a break from metal. As shiny and fascinating as it is, the sharp, cold, hardness of metal appeals to me very little in the colder months.
Coming soon, pictures of the four scarves I'm almost done making, which are headed to Flow, our Marshall gallery.

Inspired by an upcoming fashion show/benefit, I made some bangles with stainless steel and gemstones.
And I'm superexcited about these birds~ I'm working on scarves, hats, and tiny bags that would be perfect for a cellphone or medicine bag, all from recycled wool sweaters with bits of antique lace and buttons.

Lots happening in the sunroom studio these days, especially now that garden season has quieted down. Hopefully I can get some photos up of some pieces for the fashion show following the Marshall Handmade Market. Big, copper, felt, lots of reds...very different than my usual work. And of course, more jellyfish and pods and twigs and leaves and birds.
