I've been beading on a recycled quilt cut into 3 6"x6"s mounted onto a canvas frame...(you know what has been said about idle hands). Beading, like hand stitching, offers space for quiet meditation for gaining clarity in thought and returning to my center.
and it was Marla Jackson's photo on her facebook page that pushed me to finally try ice dyeing after months and months of seeing snow dyed and ice dyed fabrics on blogs.
These are 6 small pieces that were layered in a parfait. They were placed in wet. When I return tomorrow or on Thursday I'll try it with dry fabric to see if it gets a sharper crystalline pattern.
I'm considering overdyeing these with ice with orange and aqua marine dyes.
If you're in the city, stop by Kore Gallery this month to see more of my work as the featured artist.
