The largest piece....

...I've ever done!  The pic below is of what, will be, a large bathroom window.  It is the commission piece I've had so much fun doing!   The left side show a finished panel.  Just the sewn fibers.  The right side is after a first coat of resin has been applied.  The blue tape indicates the placement of the dogwood grove and the rhododendron shrubs.   

Once both panels have two coats of resin and  painted embellishing here and there, I'll do two more coats of resin.  In between those, I'll set in the organic elements:  oat straw, beeswax, rhodiola branch, and a little magic!  Trust me, when these pieces are mounted, they will look like stained glass!

This is the trill of creating a commission piece:  designing for a specific space in a home or business, with the hobbies and interests of the about "to be owners" in mind!

Close up and personal!

Today, I'm messing around with this website to add Eco-Depot Market Place as a venue where my art fiber art can be seen and purchased.  

This is such an exiting concept!  Recycled, repurposed items that are transformed into stunning art work.  Quilts, jewelry, yard art, paintings....oh my!  For me it is stunning to be working with so many talented artists.  I really believe Asheville is a "vortex of creativity"!

Whilst looking for a couple of pic, I came across this one of a close up showing the colors on the rim of a vessel.  I love these colors!  And when the light passes through?  Like stained glass!

Eco-Depot is located in Asheville's River Arts District, at 408 Depot Street.   Stop by and check it out!
