This fused glass arrangement was just popped into the kiln, and Tuesday evening I will be able to see whether my intentions have come to fruition. This work, all transparent glass, is to be a companion to a silk piece I am working on.
My progress on the textile has been astonishingly slow. I spent many hours dyeing the silk, both chiffon and organza, and more hours stitching the cloth. My goal was Korean pojagi-style piecing, with gorgeous complicated mysterious seams.
What has evolved is what I fondly call "pam-pojagi," a seam that looks like nothing I have found on the web or in books under "pojagi," but a complicated seam, just the same. My seam. But not a pojagi seam.
Our reveal for Digital to Textile is Wednesday night, so I won't share pictures here of my challenge-in-progress. This is a delightful ride.
