Indigo Dye

Spent Friday at Beth's house with her indigo dye vat.  I have some lovely fabric now.  Just a few pictures of fabric opened at Beth's.  I have some other fabric that I had to let completely dry so I could undo the stitching.  I'll show them later.

Rolled and twisted on a diagonal

Folded according then tied

Marked then points wrapped

Two Awards

Yesterday was the Opening for the UMA Juried Student Show.  I won two awards!

The first was the Book Award for Rusty Skills.  The book represents sewing skills that are being lost in the younger generation.

The second award was a purchase award.  The faculty of the Art Department voted unanimously to purchase my art cloth. The art cloth is 56" by 34" and is a silkscreen print.  It is now in the permanently art collection of the University of Maine at Augusta.

Off to the right of this picture is another piece that I made.  It is 3-D Rust.

3-D Rust Wall Hanging

This is another piece in my Rusty Skills series.  I think it is less successful than my rust book but it is not bad.  It is 3-D because the back fabric in stretched on the back of stretcher bars that I painted black.  The front fabric is stretched onto the front of the bars and wrapped around to be stapled to the back.  Both pieces of fabric were repeated rusted.  Below is the wall hanging and then two detail shots.
