Felt Fashion-2013

This is a bit of a catch up post…Some work from 2013 I didn’t share here.  Facebook friends will have seen these images, but I missed writing about them here in the midst of the busy-ness that was Fall.

 These pieces and the photographs were an important part of my creative evolution through 2013.  Moving into exploring more complex garment construction and the body as a canvas….lots of surfaces….and doing some photography with models. Rachel always looks fantastic in my work, and we are comfortable with one another and have fun doing the shoots. She gets to play model (stunningly) and I get to play photographer!

2014 holds lots more exploration of fashion…shibori work, origami in clothing, architectural shaping…sculpture for the body….lots of natural dye work as well…it’s going to be fun!

      Thank you Ginny! I hope our paths cross again in 2014! I will be visiting friends on Bainbridge in March…and maybe passing throguh again in October. Until that happens, looking forward to keeping up with your work online! Happy New Year!
