a second transformation, glass to textile
My current passion is trying to explore a mode of communication between my glass art and my textile art. I am captivated by how a flat panel of glass then becomes a vessel, with volume, and then, when photographed, can be again represented in a flat plane via fabric.
It is this theme that I pursued for my entry into an upcoming juried exhibit called Rituals. And as I shared in an earlier post, I had to abandon, for the present, my first project, as the many delightful hours of stitching caused a blowout of an old shoulder injury.
Enter effort number two, which is the design (above) I created with after digitally manipulating photos of a vase I made.
Now this two-foot-by-five-foot image, printed on cotton sateen, awaits my machine stitching, an activity I expect will be a lot kinder and gentler to my less-than-perfect shoulder.
