grace that is beautiful.
Serena~this is why you (we) needto be patient with y/our selves.things take time. a life takesa lifetime to live.thank you for witnessing mine...it is what it is because yousee it
what a great use of Glennis' silk??beautiful. I love it.
there is something serpent in your figures.
O Grace ! I missed a couple of days and: POOF ! there are the most amazing cloths of you !!!! And I can VERY well understand why you would call ALL of your cloths from now on: I love Jude Hill !!;-)))And this new piece with the silk of Shibori-girl I assume ....?!?Very promising !
This one seems to be floating too. You seem to have a theme of flowing, floating, flying going on this month.;~) Debi
slithery! ...... and the colors of the woven, the ground cloth and the colors of the pleated silk are perfect.
so beautiful... serpent woman emerging
the background weaving looks like it is Heike's cloth, yes? the purple's and pink? Nice combo.Yes looks like Glennis's shibori.
All of Us~yes. it's glennis'sshibori that i got a long time agoit seems and today rose from thebasket seemingly of it's own accord.the reason it does look so snakeyis that i still cannot bear tocut it.but, the "distortion" of the figures is just how they have always come for me. i thought about it all day, why,or rather What that is, and alli can think is that is what my Inside Self i guess, seems like...like Wind.not the 5'2" physical body thatholds the needle and thread, butthe self inside? there are a lotof "terms" for what i'm trying tosay but i am hoping to avoidusing them and just keep it simple.these two cloths are extremelyimportant to me.
Helen...wow...your comment justshowed up...took a looooong timeto come through.no...not Heike's. the purple issome old old cloth from when i used to dye mohair for these littleangels i made and sold. the other is some i dyed with something, not being a note keeper. i haven't forgotten thati am sending you scraps...i amjust unforgivably self absorbed inthe moment
Grace, I love your faces. I saw the one picture of your dolls and feel sad that I can't see more. Your faces have so much emotion in them. this is truly wonderful...
Looking graceful and indeed sassy to me.
What a mysterious face. She has a story to tell....
Words can have a powerful affect when used in naming, describing something. This new spirit woman of grace, with her shibori pleated cloth is beautifully powerful and I was enthralled until the words serpent, serpentine woman, slithery appeared in the comments. See I have a morbid fear of snakes and just seeing those words caused a visceral reaction. I wrote to grace this morning, that while I loved this cloth, those words caused me to not be able to continue to look...and I have sat with this for several hours now. And what I have found is that the power of a cloth far surpasses language. So here in this public forum, I want to apologize to grace. While I will never be comfortable with serpentine references, that image is not what I see when I look at this woman of shibori cloth. Yes, I see movement, and because of the pleats in the cloth, it can even be said to be undulating, another description of serpentine. BUT the overriding image is the knowing that is revealing itself in this woman of shibori cloth, a melding of several woman, Jude, Glennis and most of all, the vision of grace and to me it is truly powerfully beautiful as was my first reaction. Full circle.
Marti...i am thinking. willrespond to your words in a bit...am looking at the cloth and thinking.it's really a great thing, thisfull circlebecause it tells me something veryimportant aboutcloth makingorabout the me~making that thecloth does....i really love you for this.
ok...i'll try a little.what i hope for, with this clothmaking is that they could beanything at allto anyone who looks upon them.or, more, reallythey can be whatever someone wantsthem to be...or even doesn't.i do not have ideas in mind wheni begin...they just start somewhere, with a bit of clothand occur.these two are a little differentin that they have the drawn faces.important for me in this momentbecause this reconciles the yearsof dollmaking/figure making thatcame to an end because of circumstance.and remains for me something thatis unresolved.so the faces with clothhelps me come to knowing somethingabout that.this cloth will change a lot inthe next days. i look forward toyour responses.xoxoxo
This is very powerful, Grace.
oh my this is beautiful...
