New and Nuno

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.

New Direction

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.

Marshall Handmade Market

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.

Thanks to Adrienne at Love to Know for the interesting questions.

New Gallery!

It's been too long since I've had new work to show off on the blog, but with good reason.
Seven other women from the Marshall High Studios and I have been hard at work opening and now running a new gallery in our sweet little town. And we just heard the governor will be visiting us next week~ how exciting!!

Here are just a couple of quick shots of the space, with many more on our FLOW Facebook page.

And here's the hand made book I made for our in-store communications~
