One of the main joys of working in fiber is the kinesthesia of color it offers. I actually hold color in my hand and feel the weight of it within the fabric. It’s the difference between seeing a photo of your beloved or actually touching his/her hand.
When you buy a piece of fiber art, or a quilt, you enjoy an added dimension in the kinesthetic presence fabric brings into your home. Our bodies sense touch even when we are not touching. We are wired for tactile perception. Whether you are hanging a piece on your wall or laying it upon your bed, your eyes, body and soul feel the touch of it and warm to it.
This is a queen-size bed quilt I recently finished for a client. It reminds me of a deep forest walk…sun in the sky high above a thick forest canopy, the smell of damp, loamy earth under redwoods, the taste of rich, fertile soil that hangs in the air, the feel of fog on my face as I move, and the deep quiet of nature I feel in my bones, that blesses and nourishes my soul
In the next week I will be setting up my “Holiday Sales Gallery” on this site. By next Friday several new items will be posted for purchase. This season I will be donating 10% of all holiday sales to the Food Bank.
As always, I am available for commissioned work. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to begin that process.
Please pass this site on to your friends.
