My new project, I cannot wait! The inspiration came from Karen Sistek, an incredible Master Silk Painter in Seattle. I took a photo during a stay in Indianapolis in the summer of 2013 of giant Hibiscus plants. I selected, I cropped, I copied it on regular paper and found a great printing buisness in Libertyville where they enlarged it for me. This coming week I will reproduce it onto silk using spray starch, dyes, and vodka. I’ll keep you updated.
Shibori, the art of folding,wrapping, and/or stitching silk before dying. I have been playing around with all the different ways I could think of. These results stood out to me. I love the kaleidoscope that came out of the folded silk flower. The triangle went from squares on one end to circles on the other end. The photo does not do it justice.
