A rather cold, wet, foggy weekend here, that was filled with extended family, cooking, a couple of walks,
and the beginnings of a new small painting. I also managed just a smidgen of block printing on some denim from an old pair of jeans that were on their way out the door to a charitable reseller. Pretty pleased with it, actually, because the "drape" of the soft denim is wonderful. Of course, you wouldn't find the periodic horizontal marks an a piece printed by a master printer, but the fact of the matter is, I like the interest they add to the pattern. Our family has consumed so much denim over the years. Lot's of potential. . . .
Looking for a little inspiration this week? Watch this 4-minute video on Nora Fok, an English artist,originally from Hong Kong, who was shortlisted for the Jerwood Applied Arts Prize in 2007. Nora creates extraordinary one-off jewelry pieces from plant parts and micro-filament that blur the boundaries between textile art, jewelry and sculpture.
Hope you're able to fit some creativity into the week ahead!
