How much rice is in your bowl?

Here is my entry for the Art for Hunger exhibition in Augusta, November 1-19.  All pieces are for sale for $50.   Size limit was 5 inch squares so the hand dyed black cotton is 5x5.  It has organza circles machine appliqued and hand embroidered "rice."  It is sewn to a mat of high rag content paper and is hung on two chop sticks.


  1. I love that it's so simple yet so effective--great job. Did you dye the black yourself? If so, what Procion MX black did you use? I tried to dye some Jet Black over the weekend & everything turned out blue or grey, even though I doubled the amount of dye powder.

  2. Ingenious, and so poignant! I have really enjoyed following your blog!

  3. This sounds like a very worthwhile project and you have created a lovely fragile reminder to visually convey the need to reach out to feed the hungry. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  4. ...such a nice piece...and for such a good cause...
