It is done!

Indelible_spirit3_1  Hi Juanita!!!!!!!!!!!  (I hope you read this).



Here is Cilium 2 (I kept the name because I liked the connection to the physical body and the idea of what function cilium serves).



It measures 21"x35.5"Dscn0803 It was such fun to do and I loved every aspect of it even when I was frustrated with it...couching the copper was like wrestling a sumo.



I'm going to try using the wire to help form a 3-d shape on another piece by sewing it between fabrics...but that is a project for sometime in the distant future.



Enjoy more closeups.

I have sketches for 3 more but since my sewing machine went in for its annual check-up, I'm without for 10 days...I'm glad I didn't wait to take it in, another week and the warranty would have expired and it would have cost me moola. 



Oh, I have a question about insuring work.  I am sending this piece off to the Indelible Spirit show and it will travel and not be in my possession for at least a year, maybe 2 (can't remember).  Do I need to insure this piece? and if yes, is there a special type of insurance I need?  Give me the 4-1-1 on what I need to consider.  Thanks!

  2. Ya hoo...a series..you go girl. and what an incredible second piece. Yes, you do need to insure your work but you need a private insurer not the Fed EX or UPS insurance. I have the info somewhere in the mess from the move; will email you as soon as I find it.
    Congrats on another great composition.

  5. Karada,
    I like this piece...and your idea of a series of cilium
    quilts....very original and personal. Looking forward to seeing more. Is this a perfect rectangle? I can't see the edges of the quilt.

  10. The photos are magnigicent, but don't do justice to it's intense irridescence (for lack of a better word) In person it just glows and sucks you in.
    Both pieces hung together should be breathtaking. Are you really planning more?

  16. Wow! These are wonderful.
    I'm sorry I don't comment very often, by the way - for some reason Awasu won't update your blog beyond last January so I have to go into it when I remember and click on the heading to update it.

  19. Ok, I admit it - I came back not to read a new post, but just to gawk at C2 again. I see something different every time, and it is just becoming an addiction, sort of like chocolate; one of those that you don't *really* want to break...
