Colette Wolff’s book, “The Art of Manipulating Fabric” arrived just in time to keep me company while I get over the flu. It is full of all kinds of ideas for creating texture and dimensional surfaces with fabric. I’ve also been studying and practicing folding paper tessalations after viewing one of the flickr photo pools. I was led there by one of my flickr contacts whose work is fascinating. I am imagining how I will use these ideas in shibori.
Over the holiday I took a drive up the 101 (California Coast HWY) and stopped at a couple of the missions and saw the fiber related display above. The California Missions are definitely worth a trip up the coast. So far I’ve only visited 6 of the 21 Alta California Missions and plan to visit all of them. Photo below was taken at the Mission San Miguel de Archangel- it has a kind of surreal quality don’t you think?
Back to work tomorrow (I hope!).
