Up The Pole...


or should that be, Round The Bend...? Either way, Arashi Shibori, here I come!! I've been looking for a while for a piece of thick pipe to use for shibori, and yesterday, I found two waste bins that are perfect for the job, cheap too; and what's more, they can store stuff while they're not being used (or possibly while...but that remains to be seen). So, whilst next week is pretty much a write off for working, with visitors coming, and meetings to go to, the following week is likely to be colourful!

I said at some point recently that I'd made a piece I was truly happy with; well, this is it. See what you think. I think it fits into the 'Before The Angels' theme I have been working with, and may well inspire more pieces. Lutradur again, of course...not that I'm obsessed, or anything...

Very nice. Kept my eyes moving from spot to spot. I am sure the photo does not do justice to the true colors and quilting.

A firend referred to arashi shibori as "fabric pole dancing" and I am so stuck with that phrase in my head!

I have just been reading Memory on cloth, and have a huge admiration for all those folks who devote such energy, dedication, and patience to shibori. I'm afraid I just don't have the right sort of stamina.

It has a Klee-like feeling to it - a sort of mysterious confluence of elements.

I love arashi shibori. I found a few good pvc pipes sections for it, but my biggest challenge is finding pots big enough.

I like the new piece very much.

Yup, I have to agree this is a really good piece. I love it. It feels so alive and happy.
